Not an RB2 expert here but I believe them to be lower mid-level in their day. Value is likely based less on desirability of this specific bike and more on how ready to ride it is. That said, this looks like a well preserved late-80s/early 90s Japanese road bike looking for an able rider. I'd say $225-$250 for someone looking for a "turn key" road bike. .

hello. looks to be a 1988 year model. i would certainly pick one up if i found one nearby having enjoyed the ride of a friendS 1991. from what ive read i believe that BRIDGESTONEs stood out in their day for great frame sets with mid-level groups at affordable price points. the top-of-the-line RB-1 is desirable among enthusiasts and the RB-2 shares the same geometry if not the exact frame. id say a solid buy. enjoy the ride! cheers.
