1977 Nishiki Interceptor

Unique survivor

I found this at a church sale and bought it for my then 7 year old son.  It was way too big for him, so I put it away and forgot about it.  A year later, he got really interested in BMX, and I got him a 79 Motomag for his B-day.  Once I gave him that bike, I was hooked.  Now it's time to break out the Nishiki and clean it up.  This is how it looked when I bought it.  I don't know the year, but I'm guessing late 70s The first two numbers in the serial are 77, but who knows. Quality wise, it's probably not much of a bike, but I think it looks pretty damn cool. I would love any info on the bike.  So far I haven't been able to find much out about it.

Re: 1977 Nishiki Interceptor

These frames were marketed BRIEFLY in the States under the Viscount brand. Yamaha owned Viscount at that point. I had a Viscount MX in 1978 and this was the exact frame. It even had the MX-60s. It was my first BMX.  Should have never sold it. By the time I did it had Super Maxis on it as well as Oakley 3s on alloy bars. Tuff looking bike BITD.

I build what I like. I am not into restoring everything... some things need to be custom. I live by my own criteria, not yours. If that is something that bothers you, feel free to leave me alone.
