1985 Bridgestone 500
Got this for helping out a local community shop and use it mainly as a daily. Currently have the bike disassembled and have already sand blasted the frame clean of rust. Working on painting it myself with replacement decals and some other stuffs :)

I signed my name into the top tube to let people know that this is my bike. No I didnt actually build the frame but I feel the paint job says alot about the owner ;)

Current Stage Info:
I painted the frameset just before Christmas 2019. We went with a simple silver body and gold outlined lugs to compliment the gold chain. The part you cant see is the gold pearl in the clear coat. Only in person can you see its glamour. The setup isnt finished yet but since covid-19 happened. Mostly everything has been slow or non existent. We will all recover from this time and hopefully stronger than ever. Take care everyone ️
