The 1990 model is my favorite Zip; elegant build and beautiful retro-ish decals. Key problems with 1990 MB-0's though are mediocre welds (not lugged like other Bridgestones and poorly executed), structurally weak unheat-treated tube set and fragile paint. A classic anomoly for the company nevertheless.
Quirky fact is also the Zip is Tw made ...and the models sitting under it in Jp.
I think your bike is a very serious contender in the BOTM, Holden. It is very clean & pure. Funny to see we have with the Roberts, Serotta ...and now your Bridgstone already 3 about similar entries: steel, distinguished, elegant
