Thinking of picking up a Breezer Lightning to restore. Are the frame decals available anywhere?

I think a retrobiker here nicknamed Gil-M or search Retrodecals on facebook (same person) can help you with it. :wink:

I recently saw a very neglected and partially corroded Lightning for sale, at a super low price and I had similar thoughts. (It could well be the same one you're thinking of purchasing - whole lotta work involved in repainting that one!)

Contact JB through the Marin Museum website mmbhof.org (some great info on there well worth a couple hours poring over) and ask if he has spares or can point you to someone who does, if you're serious about a proper restoration. A Lightning, in my humble opinion, deserves full and meticulous attention. I suppose every Breezer should be restored meticoulously, but getting those spears positioned accurately is key to a Lightning's authenticity and making it valuable for a whole while longer. Hope you go for it. I'd love to see another decent Breezer rebuild.

I'm still living in hope I'll find a worthy 90s' Breezer frame to restore myself some day. Till then, I have a contemporary Breezer Repack built for bashing down hills at speed and even riding back up again comfortably and efficiently (unless I choose to hitch a ride - which I do more often than not on an uplift trailer!)
