Anyone know what kind of Bridgestone this is?

Hey, got this bike the other day from a friend and I'm just wondering if anyone knows what it is and what it is worth. It is a ten speed bridgestone. Serial J341928


the text on the down tube says "tested finest bicycle with precision mechanism"

You should post this on C&V, as someone there may be able to tell you more about the model. That said, judging from its low-end components, I would not pay more than $25 for it.

For a while in the 70s Bridgestone and kabuki [one of their lables] came into this country with an unusual but heavy frame like yours that had the tubes "cast" into the lugs. The bike is probably worth between $5 and $20.

Bridgestone has at times made some VERY fine machines thought.

Those lugs are pretty ugly.
