Mystery frame and fork

Hello,

I recently acquired a bike and in a year have still not figured out exactly what it is. The bike came complete with a 7402 rear derailleur, 7700 front derailleur, cinelli stem and bars, dura ace bar end shifters, 600 tri-color hubs, dia compe brakes and levers. I believe the tubing is Tange 1 and the frame was made my nishiki (based off the original decals) but I canít find it anywhere. Tried the serial number database and itís not in there. The serial number and other number I found are in the pictures below! Thanks in advance for any help regarding what it is or could be worth!

Hello Alj10571 ,

yes, the serial number is consistent with some Nishiki models. The frame was manufactured in 1990, month 03, in Taiwan.

I have seen Prestige model frames that are similar, but the paint colour was always red.
The Nishiki Tri-A model was also similar, but may have been from 1989.

Thank you for your reply! After hours and hours of digging I ended up discovering it is a 1990 international performance equipe with Tange 1 tubing!

Oh! I missed the International model. It has the right paint scheme.
