Bridgestone RB-4 vintage

I purchased the Bridgestone RB-4 ladies bike in 1988 or 1989, and ridden exactly 4 times. I think it was a $600 expense. It never fit me correctly and I lost interest in it. It has been sitting in my basement since that time. I have the original owner's manual. Is there a market for this or should i just give it to Goodwill?

Welcome! There definitely is a market (also depending on your location) given the times we are in right now. Bikes are just about sold out at most big box stores and local bike shops.
Also depends on the condition of your bike.

Take at least 1/2 dozen pictures. One or two showing whole bike. Three or four detail shots of components. List it on Craigslist and Facebook. Ask for about $150. It should sell pretty quick if it's in good condition.
