    so is there any way to tell if this is one of the 400+ BRIDGESTONE frames?

    ok i was told there are cheap low end bikes with the BRIDGESTONE labeling but i also see some for 400-500 bones..anyone got an idea on this one.

    well since i'm a magician i can easily look at that crappy picture and deduce that it's from 1684 and was created by a lute maker for the king of rome. they just put the bridgestone label on it because they wanted to defeat the goths.

    I like how the thing that interested me most in thread this is due to the fact I graduated with a History Degree and I see flaws

    18 speed would make it a 6x3, the levers on there are suicide levers, which you find on lower end frames. Not that this can't be changed out from the original configuration.

    The really higher end and sought after bikes/frames are the RB-1 and RB-2.
    that bike you see there is not worth $300, more like $50~100. It cost $250 NEW.

    use search: Bridgestone 400?
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    It's a Bike Boom bike. It cost less when it was made than it does now. It is not this. This is a Bridgestone NJS frame. There are many very big differences.

    *makes Jedi-like hand motion* This is not the frame you are looking for.

    Suicide levers, reflectors, and that dag nasty lookin' crank are all key indicators.
    We'll save the tightness of the geometry 'til next time.

    Move that to the Wacky World of Craigslist thread mister.
    - Solo Attack: When you attack, let the sprint group lead you out. You take no points. But when they sit up, you put your head down and hold threshold. Remember: When you see Jesus you are still about 2 minutes from blacking out. Hang on.

    That bike is a low end pre Grant Peterson bike that is worth about $50. It would be a good candidate for conversion at that price. You could have found all this information by use of this neat new trick called Google. You go to Google.com and type in the words "bridgestone 400". Wa la!
