Keirin Bridgestone Frame

Hi all,

I just acquired a Bridgestone track frame. I would like to know which bad-ass Keirin cyclist used to ride it. Does anyone know how I can link the serial number to the team/rider that might have raced it?

Cheers,
Arnel

Welcome to the forum.

That information is highly personal. *If* any data exists, you'll likely have to get it directly from Bridgestone. And even then, the most they'll even consider offering is probably the manufacturing data and basic info about it. But even that is a long shot.

No way in hell you'll get the name of the person it was made for or sold to. That's a huge violation of privacy laws. Unless the frame is extremely unique or the rider's name or team name are painted on the frame, you are out of luck on finding that info.

hmm, my Makino has what I had always assumed was the race number / info printed on a sticker on the seat tube. Unfortunately all the text is kanji and I don't reed gud.
It does bring a certain Legit'ness to it when I skid to a stop outside the cafe
