my old bike!
« on: July 25, 2016, 10:26:49 PM »
The old Bridgestone has been sitting quietly in my garage for 30 years.. I keep working on the big rigs (1940 Harley Flathead, 1948 Panhead, etc.) but I think it is time to put my first bike, a 1966 Bridgestone 175 street model on top of the list. Finding this site will be immensely helpful. The 175 has compression and I don't see why it wouldn't run but I need a battery and a key for sure. The throttle cables appear to be seized up but the carburetor plungers move. I just bought some new rubber covers for them. I will post some pictures as I go. Wish me luck!
Ride fast and live long!
