Ok, so I know I've been posting a lot of threads, but I keep coming across Bridgestone bikes. I really appreciate all of your help.
So, with that said, I have been offered a 1987 Bridgestone MB-2 for 300 dollars in my size and I'm wondering if I should go for it. I'm a bit low on funds but this is a bike I've wanted for a while. Here is what the seller has said about it...
"Here's what I have (I bought it with some parts and found the rest over time):
1) 19" (center to center) frame in really good shape. It has some typical nicks, but is overall in great shape for the age. I've cleaned it up, waxed it, etc.
2) Matching fork and stem in similar condition, though maybe with a few more nicks.
3) Sakae SX crank set (175mm)
4) Correct Suntour XC7000/Sport f/r derailleurs and XC5000 thumb shifters
5) Araya RM-20 rims on Suzue hubs
6) New 6-speed freewheel (Sunrace, I think)
7) New Tange chrome headset (having trouble getting it in - probably needs head tube reamed and faced at a shop - not a big deal)
8) Original brakes: Suntour XC7000/Sport rollercam rear and cantilever front with Suntour levers. I also have yellow Kool Stop Eagle pads to match.
9) Bright green Oury grips
10) Correct size Caragashi brake cable with yellow housing
11) Strong seatpost and Suntour post quick release."

Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks for all of your previous help!
