Welcome to the Bridgestone site!
Sounds like you might try some new combinations with the Bridgestones - have fun blazing a new trail and we love to see photos of progress.

       Very sorry to hear of Brian's passing.          Like many here, I bought parts from him over the years.
     A sad loss for the UK Bridgestone community. 
 I agree, would be a fitting tribute if his remaining collection could be kept together.           Brian.

Another geezer here who enjoys messing with bikes that were new when I was young!  I am new not only to Bridgestones, but to 2-strokes completely, being an old Triumph guy currently engaged mostly with small Honda 4Ts.  I do not own a complete Bridgestone motorcycle, nor am I likely to:  my focus is road racing, and although I admit that I have stripped at least one very nice, complete Honda CB160 to "racerize" it, I do feel that's a shame.  I am currently gathering parts to build a BS50 Sport racer, with so far a 60 Surfrider frame and a couple of mostly-complete  ;) 60 engines (one from a Chibi).  Besides tuning advice, my questions are likely to center on parts compatibility (like putting a BS50 transmission into the Chibi engine).  But there are no doubt many members of this forum who know much better than I do what I should be asking!    cheers, Jack

I also was fortunate to purchase some hard to find Bridgestone parts from Brian a few years back.  A class act and a pleasure to converse with. 

Best wishes to his family.

Very sad news, I have also bought parts from Brian. As we are inclined to say here in Oz 'he was a top bloke'.
I hope his bikes are kept together as a collection, either with a collector or in a motorcycle museum.
Vale Brian

Sad news.  I communicated and dealt with Brian a few times over the years.  He was very helpful. He was active for many years in the Yahoo Bridgestone Group.

I'll post the news on the Yahoo group.

Sad news from the UK I'm afraid. Brian sadly passed away Monday morning. He will be more known to UK members, I guess, but had Bridgestone friends around the world.

I first met him some 20 years ago when he kept asking me to build a 200 engine for a bike he'd unearthed. This coincided with me building the first of my 200 racers so it worked just fine. He spent much time scouring the USA in pre internet days buying up NOS which he then shipped back, somehow, as hand luggage...luggage that would involve me having to meet him at the airport with a van there was that much of it. Together we restored almost 60 Bridgestones back to concours condition and ended up with pretty much one of each model/capacity...from 50 through to 350...and including Taka, Rockford and SR models. Brian thinned the collection out some 5 years ago after a health scare but was enormously proud of his collection that we guessed was probably the largest collection of restored Bridgestones in the world. Anyway, I thought it best that those that knew him know. I'll miss him, for sure.
