  Offering at no reserve as always is a true barn find 1970 Bridgestone 175 scrambler. This is a twin and has the high pipes so would be considered a dual purpose or old enduro. The pipes have surface patina but appear very solid. We tried not to touch this in any way to preserve it as found. The only thing we did was take an air hose and blew it off. It was under a canvas but on a partial dirt floor so humidity did more to it than anything else. I believe they quit making Bridgestone in the mid seventies. I believe it is still on the original tires though they are dry rotted. All brackets and covers appear to be in place. These are the hard to find items. I turned it over to check for compression and it feels good. I did this only once to preserve the cylinders due to lubrication from sitting for 40 years or so. This bike can be easily restored and running or just leave it as is for the person who wants them unmolested. Most of these were thrown away when quit being used. Probably not that many true originals out there any more. Selling with intention of all components needing restoration. Payment expected within 5 working days of close of auction. Buyer to arrange for shipping.
