Rare, Vintage Bridgestone Carmel—Offers

I am the original owner of a 1986 Bridgestone Carmel in very good original (except seat) condition. Low miles, kept garaged throughout it’s life! It has small areas of surface rust and the tires may need replacement. I would like this bike to go to someone who will appreciate it. I haven’t ridden it much since I started riding my recumbent. I will entertain any offers for this great bike.
