Right, the seized seat post and b/b are out! The shop is trying to find a 1" Ritchey fork to match the frame, and then it's all off to Argos to be made beautiful again.

I'm gonna ride my '91 hot as is for a bit (i.e tatty as f..k), but go with the respray dude! Argos did a fantastic job on my other hot too.

Have now got a Breezer Ritchey fork (thanks Lid). Argos tell me they can do full two colour respray on f+f, plus full repro decals all in for £190. Not cheap, but hopefully worth it. I'm taking it there tomorrow.

Good decision IMO :wink:
Breezers are right on the top of my wishlist, I absolutely love them!
Looking forward to the pics, a 'before' and 'after' comparison would be cool if you can :P

Yes - original colours and transfers. Only differences are that they can't do the head tube badge and the smaller decals on the seatstay.

Cost a small fortune as they had to make up special masking templates for the respray on the head tubde area, and the "Breezer" logo was also custom work. Worth it though.
