Tx!

Wasn't looking that hard but so glad I found.

Seller says 62 ctc, 64 ctt so we'll see when it gets here. I figured this is as big as they come since I had never seen one this big yet so it will have to do. Probably not going to be a daily rider but will get ridden some and likely more if its bigger.

And this seems like an interesting bicycle for the money. It's been for sale for a while so it doesn't seem like anyone wants it. The geometry is also interesting, with such a short top tube for the longer seat tube. It would almost make a good touring bike, but doesn't look like it could handle larger tires or even fenders.

I just picked up a 1989 Bridgestone MB-1 Comp off of Facebook marketplace for $50! It is in very decent shape, a few scuffs through decals, some scratches that have light rust, but it is almost original, other than an aftermarket fork, stem, and seat The seller knew that he had something special, but was ready to pass it on to me because I want to restore it and bring it back to original. Needless to say, once I saw it listed for $50 I contacted him and drove the 60 miles with a baby in the car to pick it up! I can’t wait to fix this up and hit the trails! Find out what all the MB-1 fuss is about

Forgot to mention the brake system is also aftermarket. The seller said he would ask his father (the original owner located in another state) if he has the original parts. The mods were made almost 30 years ago, so fingers crossed! I’ll upload pics in the next post, because this is my tenth post and couldn’t attach them...

This thing looks really nice. Not much work to restore to original setup. If it was a 55 I'd be going up there now! Maybe a 60cm
