    Just another conversion thread..

    Seems like every year I am getting these cheap old bikes, mostly rescue, and convert it to SS.

    Today is no different and I scored a 1989 Bridgestone MB-2 Comp. Too cheap to let it pass, my size too.

    It was from an ex-racer, so it is pretty beat up. This thing is meant to be beaten, so we'll make a beater SS out of it. Stay tuned.. if you like.

    This has just reminded me what ridiculous stems we used to use back in those days

    What is it - 150mm?

    Wow, I was jealous of the gorgeous MB-2......

    Speechless you scored such a sweet Ritchey for so cheap!

    Glad it is in good hands.
