    Amx Road Bikes + Bridgestone RB 2

    Is the AMX road Bike an rebranded iron horse frame?
    Im looking at one on craigslist:

    "This is a brand new AMX Road Bike.
    It has a 22" aluminum frame.
    Shimmano gears.
    Factory painted with patriot red, white & blue theam.

    $200 firm
    "
    I THINK its sora, with my research, and stuff.

    Supposed to retail for about $400, im not looking for fancy, but a road bike.

    Secondly, theres a bridgestone rb-2 near me, bidding on it on ebay.
    What is the weight of the stock rb-2?
    Im curious, and SHELDON BROWN IS DOWN!
    Any help appreciated!

    Just wrenched on a '91 RB-2

    I bought an RB-2 and wrenched on it a bit, installed Sora 7 speed STI & a NOS Turbo saddle (BOB's please don't burn down my house). The 56cm weighed about 21 pounds stock.

    I have the same RB-2 frame although I have yet to build it. The paint job is a classic.

    The plan is to dress her up with Chorus/Centaur mix.

    Those were selling on E-Bay for three hundred. Be aware that the one on E-Bay was Sora but it had downtube shifters. Also, that bike is not a 22" frame. The head tube is to short and the top tube and down tube are to close together for that to be a 22" frame. Guessing I would say it is somewhere around a 18".

    Thanks Ray,
    How much should i pay for a RB-2? Theres one near me, the frame looks good from the picture, things that look beat up a bit are the crank shaft so far.
