Bridgestone Minollete

Hi there from down under ( New Zealand ) a friend of mine has uncovered a ladies Bridgestone Minollete which is quite a ' different ' looking bike .
I will supply a pic if required .
He has asked me to do some homework for him about it as he is internet intolerant ,
There seems to be no information on the web about them . Does anyone know about these bikes , are there any good links to info on these bikes , regards age and value , as he wants to sell it .( well , he wants me to sell it )

Problems with Pictures of the Minollete

I cant seem to upload pictures onto here for some reason which is a shame

It surely is an interesting bike , it has a great style to it

There is some surface rusting on the frame , its a bit dusty at the moment as he has not cleaned it since buying .

Add to post ............

Ok I have had another go but still cant make it work ,
So here is my email add. if anyone wants a few pictures email me and I will send them to you .

Cheers

Bridgestone produced some interesting bikes for the Asian market, I wonder if this one is a weird as the Blouson?

No its not one of those , I wish I could download the pictures I have ,

I have found out its to do with the size of the pics , and am going through the learning process about compressing them .

I can't help with the value question (though I suspect it doesn't have much,) but there are quite a few of them in this thread.
