Nice Bridgestone Bicycle
From studying the Sheldon Brown digitized Bridgestone bicycle catalogs, it appears this is a 1988 Bridgestone 400. www.sheldonbrown.com/bridgestone/1988/pages/bridgestone-1...
This appears to be mostly the original components and is in pretty good shape, all things considered. The rear wheel looks to be the original 27 inch wheel while the front wheel is a 700 mm wheel - it isn't a good fit, which is clear from the front brakes, which only extend down to the tires, not the rim. Does the person use the front brakes on the tire?? I suppose that would sort of work. The seat is obviously not the original and could use replacing (again). A bike like this could be nicely refurbished.
