Post Sale Update: After being relisted several times, this Bridgestone sold for $1,525 after two bids on eBay in Chicago, Illinois.


Imported through the Rockford Scooter company, Bridgestone sold a variety of motorcycles in the US, ranging in displacement from 50cc from 350cc. Here’s one of the babies, a 50cc BS7-D, sometimes called the Surfrider Sportster.

The name might be the most exciting part about this scoot (VIN: 10662377), though it’s in pretty nice shape and it has just 821 miles. The seller is the second owner, and he just acquired it this year. Basics include a 50cc 2-stroke motor paired with an electric starter, 3-speed transmission, and 12 volt electrics.

The bike was “lovingly rehabilitated as it needed only cleaning and detailing to bring it to life”, which included a redone fuel tank by Motorcycle Fuel Tank Services a new battery, and new petcock. The seller has run the bike but not with the new fuel tank, which has not yet had gas put in it. The sale includes the owner’s manual, parts manual, bill of sale, some print ads, a sales brochure, and “a trove of personal notes from the original owner.” You can find extra photos (such as of the sales brochure) in this Facebook album.
