I wanted a motorcycle as long as I can remember. I saved my nickels and dimes. In Feb. 1971 I purchased a used Bridgestone 90 Sport, my first motorcycle. I think I paid $115 for a nice used one. I was 15 1/2 and in love.
I found out later it had been seized. The replacement cylinder was cast iron. My dad  showed me how to service the top end. Shortly after the crank let go. Dad showed me how to split the cases. The second time the crank let go, dad told me I knew what to do, so I did.
I ran the wheels off that little bike, read abused the poor little thing. It spent plenty of time as a dirt bike, and a road burner. After getting my license I would run around with the neighbor kid on his Honda CT90. There was no question the Bridgestone had the motor.
A titled running example showed up locally. The pricing seems reasonable. It would need some love to bring it back to glory. It would not be a show piece, but a reminder of my roots. I don't really have a use for it other than to look at it and feel good. I hate to give up the garage space, but it's so damn cool.
I've kept a bike or bikes ever since the first Bridgestone. I currently have a Honda 50 Z50A, never ride it. Norton 850 project, Harley XR1200, BMW RT, KTM 350 EXC, Suzuki DRZ, Honda CRF150. I guess I have the multiple bike disorder. What a curse!

Looks great - where did you get this work done? or is it a "top secret" vendor?

350 Talk / 350 parts are back from the tumbler!
« Last post by CL-100 on Yesterday at 09:52:46 AM »
I recently received this batch of parts for my 350 project from the tumbler.  This is my first experience with tumbling and it's quite impressive.  They use a large vibratory tumbler with a proprietary witch's brew of media that gets into the smallest crevice and cleans and coats the parts.  I find that I prefer this to the finish from a blaster.  Now I'll have something to do inside the workshop as winter settles in. 

Thanks Mike for the referral.

             Get fed up with a Bridgestone ?????.............How could that possibly happen ???;D :D ;D....   Nice try ;)

   Fear not my friend, she is safely tucked up with a couple of stablemate GTRs for company, happy as a nut in a set of spanners.    Gets turned over every few days,  I don't start them up during cold weather, it leaves a lot of water in the pipes  :'( :'(

       No Bridgestones were harmed in the production of this post.  ::)                             Best wishes,  Brian.
