Bridgestone MB-1

A friend is trading me his pristine Pearl White stock Bridgestone MB-1 for my Oehler chronograph. What would this bike be worth in cash?

OH a Chronograph. for some reason I was thinking it was a watch. do you handload?



depending on the condition of the bike, Oh size too it may be worth more then chronograph. it does fit you yes?

It all depends on condition, size, and original components...

Below are some ebay comps... for bridgestone mb 1... one recently sold for a crazy $850 but was near mint

Average is between $300 to $400 for complete and original bike in a med to large size

Frames go for between $100 to $200 depending on condition

Hope that helps... are you going to ride it or sell?

Yes, I do handload. Do you? Is that your Oehler? It looks just like mine.

It fits my friend who is about my size. I am 5'11" and usually ride a 55-56cm roadbike. He is supposed to bring it to work with him tomorrow. I will trade with him if it fits me. I think I would ride it for awhile at least. I have been wanting a lightweight lugged steel mountain bike to replace my 2 BMW(Montague) folding mountain bikes which are very heavy.
I will post pictures soon if I trade for it.

Hello,

Does anyone know how tall the tallest MB-1 were made? Year too if it was just a couple of years.

Thanks,
