Today’s entry is a OTSOTM in the making! It’s hard to believe such a specimen could last 40 years completely intact and end up AT A GOODWILL! Times like this I thank goodness for America’s perpetual cycling-ignorance.
i got this at a local Goodwill for a hundred bucks….
like the title says,a brand new old stock 1971 Bridgestone YG10B.
made in Japan,21 inch frame,ten speed,everything original and everything is there,the original Optimus pump,the Tool Box and Tools,Headlights,heck i even have the original instruction booklet and warranty card dated 1973.
the bike is beyond cool,check out the whitewall tires,the Handlebars,even the grips have tiny reflectors in them.mudguards,chromed upperframe and front and back racks… the list goes on and on.
I cant even find a pic of this bike anywhere on the internet,never mind a new condition one..i have only seen a Bridgestone Brochure pic and thats it…THIS BIKE IS RARE.
thats why i decided to submit it,there must be a record of it from now for future reference
it is so nice im actually contemplating keeping it and thats saying something.(i usually resell them after fixing them up)
was bought new and stored away,never ridden,well i took it for a spin i couldnt resist.
