Amazing stuff Joe!.... on the polished beauty was the tubing some out of stainless or was it a clear coated tubing?


That is polished (Reynolds) steel and only polished steel. The frame is as sculpture -- still on the stand I made for it in 1980.

The polished steel looks amazing in thes photos, very cool work. Out of interest do lacquer over the top of the polished finish to keep it perfect?

Utterly spellbinding. Having just got back into road bikes this is really interesting. I dream of owning a Breezer one day. Thanks for sharing. The passion is evident in the attention to detail. :D

Breezer Venturi bikes and frames were made from 1993 through 1998.

Venturis are compact frames (shorter ST vs. TT). Like a MTB, they are laterally rigid, yet vertically compliant. They were some of the first road frames like this, and more than a few roadies got tripped up buying for seat tube length. Effective (level) "top tube" length is what to go by (for most any frame really). Our 57cm has a 58.5 "TT, level."

I (we) hope to make more Venturis not too far down the road.

That's a pretty frame. Pretty enough to justify an obsessive build project.

Now that I have, it's your job to keep things so interesting that he stays. It never hurts to bump this thread.
