Can't be a MB-0, it's lugged and not welded. The MB-0 was made in Taiwan and only Japanese Bridgestone bikes were lugged. My guess is MB-1 based on the little bit of decal showing and that it appears to have Ritchey cranks. The MB-2 would have likely had XT cranks.

Yeah it's not a Zip, an MB-1. Ritchey cranks.. my first Bridgestone was a MB-4, loved that bike. Bought this MB-1 and a smaller MB-3 from a nice couple at a Velo swap about 20 years ago. We sold the MB-3... will probably just keep this one forever.
