Here are some photos I took yesterday evening of my friend Calvin's Bridgestone MB-S. Bringing this back to life with some cool parts was a great winter project.

Thanks, guys. Those are Kooka Kranks with Specialites T/A chainrings. I know that Kookas tend to crack, but this bike's days of bombing down mountains are over. Nevertheless, it will see plenty of joy rides. :)
