Bridgestone RB-1

A friend saw this frame & scooped it for me at a great price. I've been wanting one of these for a long time & feel so lucky to finally have one! Glad I waited for it to come along. Better pictures to come, and hopefully a slightly more cohesive build; this is kind of a parts bike at the moment. Might redo decals, might not; I kinda like them a little messy.

This is awesome. The old RB1 frames were bombproof.

Thank you!! Yeah, I think I kinda understand the RB-1 Cult deal now; this bike is actually pretty stiff, rides great & can be incredibly fast. It's no CAAD12, sure, but it does have a certain magic to it.
