    The man equivalent of a doll house. To bad that he didn't have the balls to ride it.

    But the Metal Militia ones add like 10hp. Add ons like that really do punch.

    wonder how it ended up in the 'wanted' category... must be related to the brainpower it took to price it at $22k

    That is a pretty neat Bridgestone. For its age it is probably OK but it is very rough. Lots of rust and a chuck broken out of the engine case. That would make a very fun rider. Excuse my ignorance but what is the lever on the side case above the shifter ? 2 speed gearbox ? choke for the rotary valve ?

    Rotary shift. Go from high gear to first or low if that is your choice. I don't think it ever caught on.

    My '69 Kawasaki T120 Roadrunner also had a more basic rotary shift pattern (and dual range 4 spd x2).
    Shifting up: N-1-2-3-4-N-1-2-3-4-N....

    from https://bridgestone.skew.org/articles/bs175test.html#:~:text=A dual rotary-valve engine,-- but they're close.

    "When the Bridgestone 175 was introduced, it was especially unusual in having a two-way transmission. With the flip of a lever, you could have a 4-speed "rotary-shift" transmission, in which neutral was between 1st and 4th and you could get 1, 2, 3, 4, N, 1, 2, etc. endlessly by pressing down on the shift lever. Pull the "sportshift" lever, which is mounted high on the right side of the transmission, over the other way and you had a 5-speed gearbox, with a conventional ratchet change and neutral between 1st and second. There was another neutral between 4th and 5th, too, and while the first neutral (the one you wanted) was almost impossible to find, the second unwanted neutral seemed impossible to avoid. No longer is that the case. A revised shiting drum gives you the same 4-speed rotary system, but those who use the 5-speed option (which you still get by moving the little lever over) will find that the pattern is now N, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. No more problems with finding neutral, and no more missing the shift between 4th and 5th."

    Oops, someone beat me to the same info :lol3

    That was a very cool bike, I had the more affordable 90 Mountain. Pretty good shape for 53 years old. Here is info on the lever:

    I never had a bike like that but it does sound like a good selling point. However, most if not all the time I downshift as I slow down and always stop in first gear then go to neutral. That idea isn't needed for that type of down shifting. :loco

    Thanks, That is a new one even on me. I have had rotary shift bikes and various different standard shift bikes but never both in the same Bike.
