1990 Bridgestone MB-3: What were the original tires and saddle?



I have a 1990 or 1991 Bridgestone MB-3. It's a sparkle-y purple.
What were the original saddle and tires? I'd like to replace the
current upgrades, er, downgrades, with as close to original equipment
as possible.

Incidentally, I was the original owner of this bike. I sold it in '93
or '94 and just bought it back. It has a lot of sentimental value,
and it's a great bike.

Also, any idea on the street value of such a bike? It's in excellent
condition.

Any information is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
John

Johnnie,,, I may have the original saddle in the cellar.. I will look.

Why don't ya put on a new saddle? Years ago I replace the original with a
more anatomical saddle.

PS: I used/use mine as a touring bicycle. Have toured many a mile.

Can't Cannondale riders read? "I'd like to replace the current
upgrades, er, downgrades, with as close to original equipment as possible."

Wow, we're very proud of you. I owned a 1987 MB-1 that was ridden
235,492 miles before it was run over by a train that derailed next to me
when I was riding across the southern flats of India. Miraculously I
escaped with just the left bar end and a scratch on my right nipple.

Hardly. I've never heard of her, she's probably an r.b.m. regular.

Is it the Avocet saddle from an actual MB-3? Would you sell it to
me? If so, what's your price? Please?

Cow Punk ster..
Yes, only a bunch of girls would complain about something as inane as top
posting.
But you must remember, there are a few [ I won't use names like GT, or
Sornson ]
who are men but want to be girls. They wear women's underwear, lipstick,
makeup,
big bra's, and go out on Saturday night looking for other men to dance with.

As a liberal thinking bicyclist, I dont' care if other bicyclists wear nylon
rather than standex.

In fact, I am happy that our group has such a diverse population of sexually
challenged transexual freaks.

Which brings me to my question:

top post // bottom post ..

Does it really matter?

If you care to communicate effectively, yes. But since you never post
anything worthwhile it doesn't matter.
