cowboy tomi and i restore a 1991 bridgestone rbt (really just tomi, i provided the bike and funds...).

take the easy stuff off first.


welp we learned bar end shifters go "lefty tighty" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

jt, member of the bridgestone gang.

get that headset.

tomi's got all the tools.

decals and the paint were looking rougher than i thought when i bought it on ebay.

bottom bracket.

all stripped. unfortunately we found more rust down the seat tube. thank god for rj the bike guy tho.

tomi measuring to later recreate the decals.

woah genesis x heat gun collab. what the heck.

scrape scrape scrape.

jt's mb3. too bad its b/w so you cant see that sparkly purple. gonna have to catch it in the wild.

time to watch paint dry.

fast way forward tomi got the black paint on, made the decals, and set that shit up. 2020 did the final tuning and it took an inaugural lake ride. god damn those bars are sexy. ripped right from the Bridgestone X0-1 look.
