I'm from eastern Nebraska, about 60 miles north west of Omaha.  My wifes parents bought this bridgestone new in 1970.  It finally quit running in the mid 80's,and got parked in a barn for years.  When her dad died her mom had to sell the farm, and the bike came to us.  It got parked behind my shop, and with kids, work, and running our own small farm it got forgot about.   Kids are now grown I have some free time and a little extra money, so I pulled the bike out of the weeds.  I'm going to start a complete disassembly and frame up restoration.  I've never tried a restoration project before, but I'm exited to start.

You may also want to check with Certified Parts Corporation in Jamesville, Wisc. and
Richard Clark. They both may have NOS decals. But you will need the part numbers.

You should be able to find the part numbers in the parts manual section of this
web site.

Hi and thanks for the add!

My name is Mark Roberts, I live in central Illinois and recently picked up a Rockford Tora.

Our local dealer when I was growing up in Southern IL was Bonners Cycle in Mt Vernon IL.
He sold Bridgestone, Hodaka and Bultaco.
I'll never forget the sound of his riders testing SR100's and 175's at the local flat tracks!

By the time I was 11, Bridgestone had gone out of business, and Rockford Motors had started
building the Chibi, Tora, Taka bikes.
I was very impressed with the Tora at the time and finally got one in my collection.

I occasionally get up to the Rockford area and have looked for any signs of Rockford Motors, not much
exists that I've been able to find. I recently met a retired mechanic that told me of going to the parent
plant for service training in the late 60's.
