Make sure to look through all the photos on OfferUp. The first is one of the photos that pops up if you Google "Nishiki Funny Bike." The rest of the photos show the bikes needs at least some work, and might have fork issues.

That's what I noticed too but hopefully its just the picture angle. I've asked seller for more pictures.

You're right. Check out the frame angles and BB height in the smaller photos. Must make for an odd riding sensation with those super slack angles and that drop.

Not craigslist or ebay, but there may be interest here, especially if you're in Canada.

^ X0-1s are cool, but Bridgestone must have collaborated with Pinarello on the decals.

^^^^^ The Nishiki should be in Wacky World
* Depiction of two different bikes
* God-awful photos of the actual bike presumed to be up for sale
* Even with the god-awful photos, it's obvious this "fixie" has derailleurs, shifters and multiple gears

Not sure where you got that idea.

edit: I thought that you meant that the bike was beat.

The bike is in NW MI where Covid19 reports are low.

Sorry, didn't mean to be obtuse, just hate that the original center of the automotive universe (to me) has been gutted and so many families that helped build all that are lucky to survive at all only to end up fighting this scourge for another epic battle that may be even more devastating.

I feel for them if they are liquidating, I could very well end up wishing I hadn't just spent a ton on my latest.

Tourism is the major economic force in that part of the state. So at this particular time, yeah, they're gonna be hurting.

That said, the seller shouldn't lean on the brand name to expect $500, posting with near ZERO info about the rest of the bike.
