Bridgestone Kabuki

Very fun bike.. Don't know the year on it.. I do know that I can lift and lower the seat post without having to remove the seat.. (I read that this was a common annoyance with Kabuki owners brought on by manufacturer-installed expander wedge seat posts.. Kind of like the stems.) Definitely on the heavy side, but a couple of upgrades will drop some of that weight off in due time.. Besides, I'm not racing anybody, so it's not that big of a concern. I'm keeping this a road bike.. No fixie conversions.

Hi Psi,
My daughter and I picked up a blue Bridgestone just like yours. Lovely! I'm guessing 1985. We sanded it down to the stainless and aluminum and converted it to a fixie. An enjoyable project. Not the lightest bike around, but very well built. We love it! It is now tootling around Paris. I just hope she doesn't get hurt.

Tube wrapping.

Mark my words, soon all the hipsters will be doing away with their top-tube pads and start wrapping with tape like this bike!
