c.1969 Bridgestone 100 TMX
Frame no. 22P015111
Engine no. 17B021558
Best known as one of the world's foremost tyre manufacturers, Bridgestone built motorcycles between 1952 and the early 1970s, establishing an unrivalled reputation for design innovation and engineering excellence. Bill Smith was the UK's official Bridgestone importer, bringing in around 1,200 models of all types in the late 1960s. Similar in appearance to many lightweight Japanese trail bikes of the period, the Bridgestone 100 TMX was of advanced design, featuring disc valve induction, a hard-chromed cylinder bore, and twin sprockets on the rear wheel. A total of only 4,344 miles is recorded on the odometer of this example, which appears in very good original condition and should be a relatively straightforward restoration. This ultra-rare and highly collectible Japanese classic is offered without documents following a period of museum display.
