1984 Bridgestone 600 Pics

This one is probably staying in the stable, a 56cm, alongside my 56cm '87 Fuji Tivoli. Just sharing pics for those who like Bridgestones. Needs a tune and I'll probably switch to blackwall tires and red housing?

Thanks, I have a 400 that I love.

I think the red cable is a good idea. The grey will make them stand out.

Ah, saw that on the local CL. Were you the guy selling it, or did you just purchase it? Either way, great bike - and my size...

Glad you took it so I didn't have to stare at it!

That is also a sweet bike. But I must say, that sure looks like a 58cm to me. And the Turbo looks like a 54cm- the same size as my wifes.

Maybe I am just nuts, but it sure seems like everyone measures bikes in different ways.

But again, sweet bikes regardless.

Centurions were measured center to top for their specs. Did you measure center to top or center to center?

I wanna look, but can't see your pics.
Ahh, there it is, nice bike.

I've got a 300, same year. I love mine.
I need a little wider saddle, but I can almost live on it.

I don't know, I think I'd go for gray or stainless braided housing, white tape, tan hoods, and white saddle. The decals and colors are understated...red would be making it too loud for my tastes, and I don't care for the black. But it's a good bike, and will look sharp whatever color-scheme you go with.

Oh, and lose the reflectors.

I measure C-C for everything using a metric tape measure. The Bridgestone fits just like my other 56cm bikes. If I measure C-T the Turbo is a 53 and the BStone 57.x.
