    The 700 is a nice bike but the RBT predecessor was the 700T a few pages down.  The 700 is more road than touring geometry and components.  I don t need

      Bridgstone though.

      Vintage Bridgestone – "performance gear for the super contenders."
      Likely an unlabeled Model 700 ~1986, shortly before this bike was renamed the
      famous RB1. For a similar catalog version (with slightly lesser components) see:

      http://www.sheldonbrown.com/bridgestone/1986/pages/11-bridgestone-700.html.

      Cycle appears to be demo from LOOK, or possibly a team frame that was never
      built up as there is no Bridgestone model # and LOOK decals came on the frame.
      Dings in paint, no dents. 


      *58cm steel frame - 4130 CrMoly triple-butted frame and tubes.  Made in Japan.

      *Shimano 600ex SIS indexed shifting.  A step down from the flagship Dura-Ace. 

      *Dura-Ace headset.  Sugino crankset.

      *Royal Gran Compe brakes w/Shimano 600 SLR brake levers. 

      *Mavic MA40 with Shimano 600 hub on front. Wolber T430 with Shimano 600 hub on
      rear with 7 spd. freewheel.  Plus extra rear: Mavic w/ Shimano hub and 6 spd 600
      Shimano freewheel.  (Extra wheel needs a spoke and truing.)

      *Cinelli handlebars and stem.  Continental Ultra 2000 tires.

      *Bling factors:  Crimson red, the orange tint in my photos is false.  Cool
      Shimano engraving on shifters and front derailleur.  Oh yes, it rides like the
      classic it is. 

      $375 plus shipping.
