I am amazed at what you find!

There's some neat stuff out there once you learn how to filter out all the other Bridgestone "items" (golf, tires, bicycles, etc.) that clog up your searches.

Now if I had a Bultaco, that would be easy.... only motorcycle stuff shows up when that's searched!  ;D

Here's a European market factory sales brochure for the GTR that you don't see too often. Noticed there are no amber or red safety reflectors on the bike.

Thanks, I suspect the original copy was written in Japananese and translated before printing.Dynamic driving" ? Too bad Yamaha felt threatened by BS advanced engineering and used government trade policy and business alliances  to force BS out of motorcycle business. That's my SPECULATION

             iagree, seems a strange item for BS  ???      Promotional or for opening up the rear shocks on the GTR ? ;D

    Especially when you are at a gas station with an oil injected motorcycle. Not too many bottles back then. That's why the little cans.

May have been used to open cans of tire patches or cans of tire patch adhesive at a BS Tire retailer?

I wonder if Richard Clark has any factory road racers or parts.

Jeff McBrayer

Not sure if RC has any of the racers or parts, but there's a fella on the Facebook Bridgestone site that has a EJR 50 and apparently is open to selling it. 

His post on the site.....

" I have a 1966 EJR 50. A pure Bridgestone GP motorcycle, raced at the IOM by Team Bridgestone. All original, with complete documents. Asking and seeking??. Contact me."

UPDATE:  This posting has been deleted from the FB page, so it may no longer be available?

I heard of this particular person saying this for a few years now. Never seen anything to back up the claims. The year that Bridgestone was to race at the IOM was canceled due to a dock workers strike and the bikes couldn't be loaded on a ferry. They never raced at the IOM. This was posted several years ago on the Yahoo Bridgestone group.

Subject: [Bridgestone] 1967 EJR 50 aquired

 
Through many year's of neogation, I have purchased one of the origional ERJ 50cc racers from a private collector in Japan, whom I have delt with for many year's. The bike arrived last week to sunny south Florida in a crate, complete with another " works " GP 50cc engine and complete parts. 14 speed gear box is in both, casset type for quick change, the bike is 100% complete and in running condition. I went to a track day's session at Holmstead raceway and fired the little 50 up, hit right on!, after a few lap's, my skinny ass was clocked at 110mph, down hill with a tail wind...lol.

In my documation and momrabelia, this bike was ridden by Jack Finnely and Ito Suzuki. A rare find...and I am damn lucky to have it, a ton of history behind this bike to us Bridgestoner's. The restoration is underway, notibaly a new fairing and assorted bit's. Pic's and vid's soon to come.

Cheers...

John L. Sullivan

Paul,

Was informed by the seller that the bike was sold yesterday and is headed to a museum in Australia.

Maybe our members down under can keep an eye out for it.  8)

That would be nice to see it show up somewhere. One of only a handful of factory racers with spares and documentation. Seems like someone would know something about it. I'll put some feelers out there ;).
