Bridgestone 300 -Perfect Condition

I found a Bridgestone 300 in Perfect Condition, no rust anywhere.

Is it worth $100 practically?

It's not my size so here's the Location Information!

Well here is the information for the bicycle as it's not my size. I almost purchased it anyway but I have so many bicycles.

It is 49.5cm from the Center of the BB to the top of the Seat Tube by 52.5cm from the Center to Center on the Top Tube. The color is Metallic Brownish/Pinkish? It is in exceptional condition! The rims are perfect with Bridgestone 27" tires. The other parts appear near perfect as well.

It's located in Maryland(USA) on the B&A Trail at Robinson Road(Chained to the Bicycle rack at the Snowball Stand). The sellers information is taped to the bicycle.

Yes. Buy it. I see them go on eBay for ~$150 consistently.

Buy it. These are cult bikes, and, unless it's rusted through or something, you WILL make a profit. On the off-chance that nobody on Ebay will give you over $75 for it, I'll buy it from you.

Me too. I've been wanting a Bridgestone, but I'm not willing to spend $150. I'd snatch one at $75.

Cruising looking for info not looking at dates

Quality is low sorry shot in the dark tonight





AS you can tell it they have bot been sitting a long time like at least 4 years since last ride.




However the bicycle is complete and working except the freewheel needs lubrication it's stiff.



It has I think 2 total scratches on it which is amazing for the age and where i found it.




The companion bike however is not in as good condition. it does however have Nitto stem and bars.
