Bridgestone MTB wanted

I would like to buy a Bridgestone MB-1, Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm watching ebay now. I wouldn't mind a frame only especially if it has the fork with it.
Wouldn't mind getting hold of a Bridgestone RB-1 either (complete bike though)

Thanks,
C. Horse

The specs kept getting better and better on the Bridgestone MTBs, so a late MB2 or MB3 may actually be a better bike than an early MB1. The MB1 will still be more expensive because it's the top of the line. Also, the early models had a kick in the fork which some people don't like. The fork is straighter on the later models.

I spent a lot of time studying the Bridgestone catalogs on the Harris site before I bought my MB2.
