new to bridgestones
« on: March 29, 2011, 06:19:43 PM »
Hi guys, just to introduce myself. I am now the proud owner of  a RS200 which I purchased at Stafford (UK) last year. It was a bit of a gamble as I had , and still have, little knowledge of the marque. It is complete and fired up on fourth kick! unbelieveable. It came into the UK from USA and I will have to register it at some stage as I want to ride it on the road. It is complete but paint is faded and chrome on tank is poor and sits on bridgestone tyres!. There never were too many on the road  here in Northern Ireland in their day and I have not seen one on the road since 1968 when a school chum appeared on one. All the best Brian

What size tyres did you fit in the end. I have a 200 and need tyres, the manual suggests 3.00 x 18 front and rear which is unusual. The 175 was popular in Dublin I did even know there was a 200 when I bought a barn find.
