    My ss Bridgestone

    Here is my 1988 bridgestone rb-2 converted to single speed. I've been riding it for years and it has been great. It is a little too big for me, but as an around town cruizer it is still a blast. Still thinking i am going to get a kilo tt and slowly upgrade it (once they get them back in chrome).

    No matter how bad things get, they can't get any better, and they can't get any worse, things are what they are, so you better get used to it Nancy, quit your B*tchin'

    Yeah i was a little worried about the drop outs myself, but it worked! Thinking about getting some orange fixation 700s (the one with the slightly slicker black center) to keep up the look, but hopefully give me a better grip and puncture resistance on the crap roads up her in logan.
