Bridgestone Youngway

It turns out that this bike is indeed a Bridgestone Youngway.

The store that I bought it from decided to remove all of the lights and horns etc and threw them in the garbage!

Although I quite liked this bicycle It was too small for me so I gave it to a young woman I work with who will get more use out of it.

The bike below just showed up on Kijiji Toronto.

The same bike re-branded as a Supercycle for Canadian Tire.

Bridgestone Mystery Bike

I’m not sure how old this bike is or what model it is.

It looks like a Bridgestone XO-2 with the famous moustache handlebars but other details lead me to believe it’s an older model.

A bit more research suggests it’s a Bridgestone Youngway from the early 1970’s.

It would appear that the bike is an early 1970’s Bridgestone Sprinter. Most seem to be 5 speeds while the one at the top of the post (mine) is a 10 speed.
