Bridgestone "Skyhawk" in Sacramento?

OK, we have a mystery here. I had to post this in a new thread because it's driving me crazy.

There's a $40 bike on the sacramento Craig's List Sacramento. The listing says it's a Bridgestone, but no photo. I wrote to her and she said it was a Skyhawk. Tried to find info, but couldn't. Wrote to her and asked if was maybe only the tires on it that were Bridgestones? Asked the age of the bike.

She said both Bridgestone and Skyhawk are on the frame, and the bike looks pretty old. It's a road bike.

Can someone go take a look at it? Might be something interesting there. Or... has anyone heard of a Skyhawk?

OK. Finally got it straightened out. I have now lost interest, so noone feel obligated to post...

From the owner:

The correct model name is Skyway-12. There is a decal that says Kabuki, tested finest bicycle ..., manufactured by Bridgestone Tokyo Japan. There is a label that says Frame & Fork HI-TENSILE.
