Bridgestone Marlboro Adventure Team Bike

Hi!
Iím recently new here so please go easy on me

I got this bike from my grandfather and its been sitting on his garage for a decade now since he passed away. I just found it.

The frame is a little bit rusty, no derailleur front and rear, no shifter and unfortunately the fork doesnt play because of the rust perhaps.

Can anyone tell me a brief history of this bike model and and its value. It would be much appreciated.

P.S: I tried looking on the internet and i got nothing or I just suck at searching on the internet :/.

From the net, it appears as though it was a marketing relationship between Marlboro and Bridgestone....the Marlboro Men will chime in with corrections and more information.
When you get your post count to 10, you can post some pictures of the bike....that will help others to provide you with more information.
Best, Ben

The photo the OP put in his gallery doesn't show the frame very well.

It would have been associated with the Marlboro Miles promotion. Are you sure it's a Bridgestone? I know they had a folding Fuji.
