Nishiki Timbuk 650B [Upcycled]
Nishiki is a brand of bicycles designed, specified, marketed and distributed by West Coast Cycle in the United States, initially manufactured by Kawamura Cycle Co. in Kobe, Japan, and subsequently by Giant of Taiwan. The bicycles were first marketed under the American Eagle brand beginning in 1965 and later under the Nishiki brand until 2001.
Like the idea of commuting on a mountain bike? This Nishiki runs a Shimano Nexus 7 internal gear hub with a roller brake. This means no more derailleur fuss, easy cleaning and very low maintenance. An unexpected combination for a 27.5" MTB, making this bike extremely rare.
This piece has been lovingly serviced, torn down and given a new front disc brake.
