Bridgestone RB-2 - $200 - Raleigh, NC
https://raleigh.craigslist.org/bik/d...652207718.html
ad reads like it was written by a BF member?
"Iconic and sought after Bridgestone RB-2 in a very well preserved purple. 58cm for a 59 to 62 cyclist. Performs as well as to be expected.
About me: I am an avid Vintage Road bike collector. I am retired and enjoy reconditioning 70s and 80s road bikes such as Peugeot, Raleigh, Bianchi, Lotus, Centurion, Colnago, Tommasini, Falcon, Trek, Motobecane and even some Schwinns. Contact me if you have one you want to let go or need to fix up. If you have one that needs some TLC, message me before you take it to the dump.
Not only were they built to last forever, they just have a unique character that is no longer present in modern day bicycles. Some just need a good bath and fresh tires where others may need a complete overhaul re-lubing bearings, fresh cables, new brake pads, new saddle and handle bar tape. I buy them to experience the ride characteristics and to compare brands, models and components. I consider them a rental till I am satisfied to let someone else experience (rent) the joy of a bygone era. The bicycle I offer is not perfect and often shows signs of age but are unique hard to find examples and perform as they should."

I may have to steal /adapt some of that verbiage for my ads. For the 5% who actually read the text haha.

I'm glad to see it sold quickly,,,, I have the same RB-2, though not selling it yet.

Don't know if it is worth the ask, but that is quite a paint job and it appears well dressed

Restored 1987 Atala road bike. Shimano Exage gruopset, Selle Italia seat, Cineli bars, Matrix rims, and 8 speed cassette. Seat tube measures 24.5in. 61cm. This is a fast bike and rides great. I’m 5’9” and the bike is a bit too big for me.

This might be a nice deal for someone. I believe these are hand made frames....

Seller is an older fella who doesn't know presentation but his bike looks like a catch to my untrained eye

In my opinion, The GJ's are underrated as a whole, and the Vitus-tubed bikes in particular. The French components on my '83 work great too.
