Found this Nirve Fifty-Three on Craig's yesterday, picked it up today. A few scratches but near new condition. Still has the plastic cover on the headbadge. Best $150 I've spent in a long time. I'm thinking about a set of Electra 24" Straight 8 wheels (3 spd, black checkerboard rear with red spokes fr & rr)) and some black fat rubber if it will fit in the springer. The springer looks pretty narrow. Have to do some checking. Has anybody tried this with a similar Nirve. If it works I'll scrap the fenders and chainguard.
