    Pre 175 Nishiki road bike.

    A friends son has a pre 1975 Nishiki road bike.
    That is all I can decipher from it since it was repainted.
    The serial # is ks289739

    I am thinking about buying this and fixing it up a bar hopper.

    The bike needs tuning and has been repainted.
    Everything is there except a seat.
    I know since it has been repainted, it has pretty much destroyed the value as a classic/vintage bike.

    Two questions.

    1) Anyone know what model and year it is?
    2) About what would the bike be worth?

    If I get it, I just want to be fair in my offer to both of us.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    The year is probably 1973 or 1974. Nishiki did not necessarily change the look of models each year prior to 1975.

    If you post some pictures of the frame, dropouts, lugs, stays, etc. it may be possible to determine a model.
