Stolen: Vintage Nishiki Olympiad

Posted by on July 28th, 2006 at 3:10 pm

My house was burglarized yesterday. Along with my laptop, CDs, and library
book (Wha?) they ripped off my newly acquired Nishiki Olympiad. THe beauty
was made in the 70s and was a stunning grey/silver with bright white
fenders. I’m 6’3″ so the frame was tall tall tall. The seat came to most
people’s chests. Unfortunately I can’t remember the exact frame size but
I’ll remember soon. THe handlebars weren’t dropped but more of a typical
commuter style so the rider sat upright. It was a ten-speed and had racing
stripe-type designs up and down the seat tube. Basically it’s a beautiful
greyish bike with fading white and pink highlights.
