Nishiki was a bicycle brand created by the West Coast Cycle - one of the most successful American companies in the business. In the 1960s, the company started to look overseas, specifically Japan, to find high quality production for their bikes. The boss of the company visited many dozens of factories before choosing the Kawamura Cycle in the city of Kobe, Japan. The bikes were at first distributed under the name "American Eagle", later changed to Nishiki after the special thread woven into ceremonial wedding kimonos.

Nishiki bikes were produced in quite wide rage of models and levels and distributed basically all over the world - in the US, Canada, Europe and even Australia. Because of the monetary instability in the late 80s, the production has been moved from Japan to Taiwan.

This Nishiki " The Aero" Road Bicycle stems from 1981 and it is one of the bikes produced for US market still in Japan. The frame is made of ovalized, possibly Tange tubes welded together. And since aerodynamics was all the rage in the 80s (as it is now), the Shimano AX parts fit the bike perfectly. As an extra, the wheels are laced around a pair of exquisite OMAS smooth hubs.

Completely checked by our mechanics in Berlin, the bike is ready to go.
