1989 Bridgestone RB-1

Hi all,
I am looking at an 89 Bridgestone RB-1 today. Pictures look good, pretty original save seat and post.
Prices seem all over teh place.
Any help?
Tom

Bridgestones command a premium but tough to value a bike without pictures.

There is this Synergy RB-2 on my CL that I have been eyeing it. Dude wants $395 though. I think they are worth that.

Buying a used bike is just like buying a used car. Does it have new tires? Has the drivetrain been refurbished? Have the wheel and crank bearings been replaced? If it's just another beat up old bike then it's not worth that much. Be good. Have fun.

...there's one on my local CL at $788. I don't think it will sell at that price, but who knows these days ?

There is a '91 for $400 in Southern California

I've considered it as it's my size, but decided to pass.
