I suppose a quick release for the seat post would have been one too many.

and something almost affordable. a goodlooking Bridgestone RB-1 for $550. https://baltimore.craigslist.org/bik/2192482390.html

1991 Bridgestone RB-1 road bike steel - $550 (arbutus)

Reply to: sale-hvukd-2192482390@craigslist.org
I hate to sell this but its a size too large for me. the frame is a 59cm. the cranks have been upgraded to Dura-ace. it rides like a dream because of the high quality steel that was used to build this frame. no wonder it has a cult following. the frame has a few scratches/nicks but its all cosmetic. they can go for a lot on ebay, between $500-$1000, so here it is at a fair price with out the crazy shipping charge. most of the info you need to know can be found here: https://www.sheldonbrown.com/bridgest...ne-1991-30.htm
if you would like to check it out, please email me with your name,#, and the time you could come by. saddle option: selle italia flite saddle with ti rails, or, brooks leather saddle $550 OBO


it is a bit of hike but I could pick this up.

Bottom of the lower headtube lug - downtube junction. Of course there is no paint to cover it up, and it could be dirt.

Ah. Or it could be a reflection, being as the frame is chromed. Hafta see it in person to be sure.

Looks like a pretty solid deal. I'm almost tempted just to get the saddle.

Awesome bike at a really good price.
Note that is not the original seat. The Bold Blue/White Star frame came with the white saddle. The Flame/White/Green came with a black saddle.

Here is a pic of my '88 Tempo with the proper seat.
