I am the proud new papa of a '92 Bridgestone RB-1. She's in immediate ridable condition, other than for the stem --- I couldn't go more than a few miles like that. I have a taller stem on order as well as aluminum clips --- the ones on it now are mismatched. Can't wait to really get her out for a good spin.
I'm going to get her repainted with new decals, but I'll be keeping all the existing components as they're in good shape.
The tires and wheels are the next most important items, which brings me to my question. Any suggestions from you C&V veterans as to where to find some all-black wheels --- that is, black on the braking surface as well? How much am I willing to spend? . . . a modestly conservative amount considering the bike only cost $550 on eBay, although I'm fully aware you can't get something for nothing . . . most times.
