    Nishiki Barbarian, anyone know anything about this bike??

    My dad is letting me use his Nishiki Barbarian that he picked up in Okinawa for about $600 back in the 80s. I know nothing about the bike but id like to learn a bit more. I cant seem to find any specs what so ever. Today was the first chance i got to ride it and it feels fairly comfortable and a lot lighter then the bike i had previously. I have been searching for a new bike but im kinda second guessing that now.
    Also, i hate the friction shifters it comes with. My last bike was a pretty cheap bike but it had trigger shifters and it was way more user friendly. I tend to miss gears or not get the derailleur centered when using the friction shifters. How hard/expensive would it be to swap shifters?
    And where can i get some 26x1.75 tires for a cheap price that can handle daily road use and a little off road riding
