    Vintage BRIDGESTONE Sabrina, anyone ever seen one of these?

    I have never seen of these before. Can't find any literature on it. I am thinking late 1960's - early 1970's. Was thinking of the movie Sabrina with Audrey Hepburn, perhaps a promotional, but that was in 1954, anyway I can only be so lucky.

    It's a single speed with a rear drum brake and all the bells and whistles.

    Anyone know when it was made and what it might be worth?

    Very nice! I just bought one, but it's not as clean as yours and is missing the front bag.

    Stainless fenders, skirt guards, full chaincase, rod brakes/drum rear, generator/headlight...

    If anybody knows anything about these, I'd be interested too!

    Apparently there's a current or recent production model with the same name (totally different bike) sold in England, and that's what all of the search results seem to be for.

    I just purchased a 5 speed women's Sabina bike at a tag sale. It is silver, aluminum fenders & steel frame, & 27" wheels. I removed the light generator because it didn't work. Just now discovered the little Hebbie Trumpf on the rear frame is a bike spoke lock~~I don't have a key for it. Mine appears to be German made because of a German emblem (previous owner was German). Was wondering how old this bike might be?

    Do have pics? The Bridgestone Sabrina is made in Japan with 26" wheels. Yours could be something completely different.
