What Bridgestone Items Have You Had or.....
« on: April 25, 2014, 04:46:49 PM »
are currently having the most difficulty finding?

Here's your chance to get your frustrations out and who knows.... maybe someone will see your list and give you a shout!  8)

I'll get this started with a couple items that have eluded my search.

1) NOS GTO oil tank. Found a decent one on eBay and managed to whiten it up considerably, but still keeping an eye out for a new one.

2) 350 GTO Owner's Manual. Been told they exist... haven't seen any.

Edit: Oops, forgot this

3) NOS or "like new" Tool pouch/bag.  It's been a little difficult finding a correct one that isn't brittle, torn or split and has good snaps.

At the moment on my GTR wish list are........

A NOS or good R/H clutch cover.

A NOS or very good pair of exhaust manifolds.

A good pair of muffler diffusers.

A NOS or very good side stand.

I may add other items as time passes.

In no particular order:

the original set of drawings for a 350 GTR (and other models too) so more parts could be reproduced to factory specs

any tooling that still exists for these parts

to win the Power Ball

OK, now I feel much better!  ;D

on the "get real" front (kinda):

a matching pair of 350 cylinders with original plating in good condition (or a replatable set with minimal damage)

a NOS left 350 GTR exhaust pipe

a complete set of 350 special tools

Really great idea for a thread Moonpup!

I would love to have a NOS or repop GTR clutch cable.
Maybe Richard will do production run on them someday.

I'll go ahead and toss another item into the fray that's been difficult for me to get my hands on and it's not because they haven't shown up on eBay or elsewhere , it's the astronomical prices some people are willing to pay for these things!  :o

It's the chrome Bridgestone license backing plate.

Here's an item that seems to me to be one that would be fairly easy to reproduce and unlike other parts that are specific (and limited) to a particular model such as connecting rods, clutch plates, etc., these encompass virtually the entire Bridgestone model line. Seems like a no-brainer to me....  ???
