The Price is Right!
« on: August 03, 2011, 09:34:15 PM »
I returned home one Sunday following an unsuccessful negotiating attempt for a 72 Triumph TR6C.  My wife tried to comfort me, but I was too deeply depressed to be consoled.  About a half-hour later, I received an unexpected text from a colleague asking if I liked to restore old motorcycles.  "Sniff, sniffle, sniff... of course,"  I replied.  He asked if I was interested in a "Smith Bridgeman" that had been sitting around his yard.  "A gift," he said.

To make a short story shorter, I am now the proud owner of a 1971 Bridgestone RS 200CC that needs a lot of work!  I love it!

Thanks for the website with all the great tips - I almost bought new shocks until I read the thread about rebuilding them.

I do however need several other parts, so I hope I can get a line on what I need here.

Welcome to the site. Richard Clark has the biggest selection of BS parts. Someone can usually offer up an idea for how to solve BS issues.
My neighbor has a TR6 in his garage and two TR7s in his driveway.
Me - I just put some JB weld around a small crack on my GTR oil tank. Not the proper fix but if it stops the leak then I'll burn some gas and oil with a smile on my face.

I have  Bridgestone 200 in the workshop right now they are a fun motorcycle and as fast as a Yamaha RD 200.
And Richard has a lot of parts for Bridgestone give him a try!
Anyway good luck with your project.
