Re: [BOBishBikesFS] Vintage Bridgestone Model 700(?)
- 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 another

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:
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.
