Nishiki.... what to do

Well I picked up a Nishiki today.

My intent was to do a singlespeed out of it. I do not think it has much if any collectors value because I think is is too new..... but I want to make sure before I tear it down.

Anyone have any idea of its year..and how to tell what size it is?
The build is as follows:

Nishiki Colorado................ MTN on the top tube
Manitou SX front shock.... blue in color
Color is dark blue or even Purple over lighter blue.
Has a very nice machined stem... that the bolts are on the front side of the fork tube...
Tektro Quartz levers and V brakes
Shimano shifters.... 7 speed cassette
STX front and rear derailers
Sugino CSS II cranks/ rings
ZAC 19 rims/ Allvio hubs Vertical drops
Ritchey Clipless
Vetta saddle

Do not know if this was all factory or if parts have been upgraded.

Thanks ahead of time for any info

Well that is the plan, have a ENO for the rear so it will be no problem.


Was curious about the year and size though. Looks to be about a 20 inch or so.
Has better tire clearence than my mid 90 Trek 820.
