Bridgestone 400 Touring

My wife wanted a new road bike for casual riding and running errands. I found this frame / fork on Craig's list in. The guy had a lot of older bike stuff he was getting rid of but thought it was all gold plated. Talked him down to $100.00 and he threw in brakes, seat post, seat bolt and some other misc. parts The frame/ fork were in rough shape with rust on all lugs and the paint was heavily scratched and chipped. The frame and fork was stripped and repainted and with new decals from Velo-Cals.applied. I sourced all the other parts from the used bins/racks in the various bike shops in town. Very nice stable ride.
