Okay, let's start at the beginning: Here's me with Breezer #1 just after winning Repack in 1977. Finish is red oxide primer. Painted it blue soon after.

Looks good for your first one.

Did it stand the test of time?

+1 !

This is going to be a great thread, and long overdue..

I have a '97 Lightning which is my pride and joy and an 'interesting' Clunker inspired Storm with Campag, including a modified Nuovo Record mech. Also a couple of NOS frames.
'Just love Breezers... the best riding bikes ever, I reckon!

I don't suppose there will be many (any?) UK postings of Breezers much before 1991, so here's my 1982 Breezer.

The differences between 1980 and 1982 Breezer frames are minor. 1980 and 81 had obvious collars at the end of the head tube and seat tube. 1982-85 had internal reinforcement at HT, actually part of the bored out head tube. The seat collar was disguised by the brass fillet. The 82 BB was bored out too. Head and seat angles were 70 degrees on both.

I do look forward to seeing more modern Breezers.

Lordy! They were built to be ridden. But wonderful to see a '96 in near stock, mint condition!
