Beth's Nishiki Mixte Makeover

Beth brought in a late '70s Nishiki Olympic Mixte, originally gold with turquoise accents.

The frame was sent out for sandblasting and powdercoating (to match the original turquoise). We installed new VO Belleville handlebars, Nitto Technomic stem, Dia Compe inverse brake levers, down tube mounted gear shifters, VO hammered fenders, Nitto rear rack, and finally a Brooks B18 Lady saddle and brown leather bar tape. This bike really turns heads.
