1990 Bidgestone MB-1

Interested in the value of my 1990 Bridgestone MB-1. It has quite a few upgrades, such as a Manitou fork, but I still have the original forks, stem, etc. Being new here, I can't post up pics yet, so e-mail or PM me for pics. Bike has been sitting for a few years due to a hip injury (not bike related), so it is a little dusty in places.

Maybe $500 in a good market. I've seen them go around $300 but then the midwest is flat when it comes to vintage bike prices. Still Bridgestones tend to command a premium.

I've owned quite a few of these over the years.

I really like them as all road bikes with slicks.

If I recall, we paid far less than $500 for one two summers ago.

Under all of the cobwebs/dirt/spider eggs, it only needed new tires, lube and cables.

Once we straightened everything around it looked like a champ.

Yes! With the original fork of course. Love the way these things handle. The suspension fork changes the geometry and nails handling these things are known for.

I might have been a little high, I figured he had the extra suspension fork thrown in. I have noticed that comparable other brand Deore XT decent tubing MTB's go for less.

(If OP didn't have original fork that would be big minus).

I was surprised a clean 1989 MB-3 sold locally (MN) listed at $200. I have no doubt you could get a good chunk of change for your superior MB-1. Bridgestone fever is real. When you create the ad, make sure to take some outdoor photos, and include pics of the OEM fork, stem, etc.

I don't know what it's worth, but I do know that the fork really hurts the value. That frame was not designed for a suspension fork.

Understood. However, I still have the original fork for it.
