This is a true unicorn bike. Second to last production year Bridgestone RB-1. Single owner, purchased new in 1994 and…..ridden once! The catalog officially calls this the RB-1/7, and it matches the spec to a T; only the stem was changed out for fit purposes, but the original Ritchey stem will be included.
56 frame size (Center to Top). Color: Red/White
[Top Tube 56.5cm, 31.6in Standover]
Original 1993 MSRP value: $1,250.00
Asking price is based on inflation calculator from 1993 to 2023, rarity of this bike and it’s nearly immaculate condition. You simply will not find a complete catalog spec RB-1 in this condition anywhere else! A true needle in a haystack! Take a look at all the photos, including digital scans from the 1993 Bridgestone catalog.
