Um...not sure what's with the pics. All are sideways and the full bike shot is jacked.
Boo technology, boo!
I'll edit once at a computer.

Looks to be a Bridgestone 500 from the mid a 80's in good condtion. these are a very nicely made mid level Japanese bikes. Triple butted cro-mo frame fairly nicely equiped with nicer Suntour components. In good condition with no issues $250-300 give or take value wise. Heres the catolog pic and basic specs for this model.

Good Japanese value. Looks comparable to a nice Centurion or Shogun. I think that would fall into the $300 price range.

thanks for the info. You are correct it was a mid eighties, an 84 actually.
I had planned on posting more pictures up and asking for values, averaging the values, and listing it for that price. A sort of game- see if the average can get it sold.
But my phone turned the pictures all around, and someone I had sold another bike to a couple weeks afo actually called and wanted to buy the Bstone before I had it listed, so I deleted the post.
