What is this?

Im tempted to buy it just because its so different, but that also means parts are non-existent. What do you guys think?

Old Bridgestone Motorcycle

Hey I've seen that on CL. I remember Peter Egan in Cycle World restored an old Bridgestone, but i think his mostly was there. Check out Walneck's Classic Cycle. I remember something about Bridgestone parts being sold there.

Ya he had it on there awhile back for $300-400 Im just tempted because it is so cheap. But ill probably let it pass because it looks like it may be a money pit.

Probably, and not one you'd make any money on either. Unless you have some sort of real kindred connection to it, I'd pass. Shame too. Old bikes are the bee's knees.

How about this for a project. 1974 Honda CB350F

Not exactly Bridgestone cheap, but think of a 350 four. Tiny little pistons!

That would probably be a much better project, But not $100 cheap. I have all my free money tied up in my 9er this winter. For $100 it couldve sat around until I had so extra cash.

Old Bridgestone. I remember that brand well. That's an old monocoque frame. Might be a 90. A hundred bucks and a desire to part it out and some patience to boot might be a good thing.
