Greetings from NYC - need help with sale of a Bridgestone Kabuki

All good people,
I'm so happy to know this place exists! I posted a friend's bike on Craig's list for sale and now I'm getting questions about the bike which I have no answer (and neither does my friend.) I'm hoping you can help.
Please take a look at the pictures and let me know if you can tell the following:
1. how many speeds?
2. frame material?
3. model?
4. year?
Thank you!
East Village Lady

1. Looks like a 10 speed (5 cogs in rear, 2 chainrings in front, right?)
2. Steel, no idea what kind. Some Kabukis were stainless, but this looks low end, so some kind of hi-ten, I suppose.
3. No idea.
4. Early to mid 80's is my guess.

Speeds: count the number of cogs in rear and number of chainwheels (cogs) in front; multiply one by the other.
Steel frame, probably high-tensile unless there's a tubing sticker on the top sloping tube or the seat tube of the frame.
It's a ladies' frame; model will probably be impossible to find unless it's one of the decals on the bike.
I'd say late 70s, possibly early 80s; more probably the latter.
