Continuing with Japanese Week, this is Connor’s 1977 Bridgestone Kabuki Superlight. The perfect mid-70s OTS in my eyes: chrome cable clamps, chrome fork tips, chrome pie plate, and of course—center-pulls!
This is my 1977 Bridgestone Kabuki Superlight I picked up for about $100 in the summer of ’09. This is my first road bike, a made in Japan beauty back from when Bridgestone marketed their bicycles under the name Kabuki. It rides great and is mostly original with the exception of a front tire, the saddle, and the seafoam green bar tape. This bike got me hooked and now I’m always looking for old ten speeds and your gallery provides some excellent food for thought. Another fun fact: I broke my arm riding this bike back in November and couldn’t wait to get back on.
