New Member in Northern West Virginia
« on: May 09, 2016, 08:55:53 PM »
Hello all. I'm new to the group and all this Bridgestone stuff. I found a lot of information here about restoring these little gems. Here is one that I found for a nice price. I'm thinking of trying a complete restore project so I might need some advice and small parts. This is what the Chibi looks like when I brought it home. I put some mixed gas in it and cleaned the spark plug and it started right up. Let me know what you all think...

Nice Find. Welcome to the BS/Rockford addiction. It should be lots of fun. Looks like a good cleaning is all it needs. They are only original once!
Just ask when you run into a dilemma. There are experts on here for all these bikes.
