Here is a 1992 Nishiki Alien mountain bike in 18". This bike is one from my personal collection. I've got too many, and I need to thin the herd. I bought this bike as just the frame. When I purchased it, the paint was stripped. I had the frame professionally blasted, and powder coated to the approximate original green color (hence no decals). This aluminum frame is in excellent overall condition. I try and find the bad scratches, and take pictures of them. There are no scratches, dings, scuffs, etc of any kind (see pictures). The frame is perfect. This bike was built up with quality components, taken off a late 1990's higher end frame. This Nishiki Alien mountain bike is in excellent overall condition with Shimano components, and Shimano trigger-type shifters. It has 27 gears (3 up front, and 9 in rear). The Rockshox Judy soaks up trail chatter on this very capable off roader. As a former bicycle mechanic, I just gave it a thorough tune up. Washed bike, removed drivetrain, degreased, cleaned, reinstalled and lubed the drivetrain. This bike is ready to ride. I put the wheels in a truing stand, and they spin straight and round. Lots of new, and quality parts on this bike. LX crank, XT rear derailleur, LX 3x9 shifters, Club Roost "Go Fast" bars with a shorter stem for a more comfortable ride. After I built this, I never took it off road. Only rode it around the neighborhood a few times, and it just sits. At the time of build up I installed NEW Saddle, new Bottom Bracket (bearings at the crank), all new shift cables, brake cables, and all associated housing. Also installed new seatpost, new Bontrager XR3 tires and new pedals. Only issues with the bike, (and they really are not issues): The left shifter has a broken lens on it (shifts as it should), and this frame was made for cantilevers, but I installed v-Brakes for better stopping power. This means that I needed to install a piece of housing in the rear that really doesn't belong there, but brakes as it should (see pict). Shifts, stops, and rides as it should. This tune up and labor would cost $200+ parts at any local bike shop, so please take that into consideration when purchasing.

This bike is size 18", meaning it should fit anyone from 5'7"- 5'11".

Asking $500 or best offer.
I'm in Williamsville, and can meet anywhere in the northtowns.
