Very cool indeed.

Did Si ever finish his do you know...? there was talk of the frame numbers bearing the letter C for continuation, was there much involvement advice direction from Joe in the end...? I know Si was given the original drawings or copies off...?

I applaud you Pete, you should be doing this for a living as I said before.

its rides well. quite alot like a all mountain bike. log wheel base slack head angle. its good down hilel and not bad goign back up there is little flex peddaling it. its a bit of a bone shaker dh. but i have not done more that 3-4 mile on it. i will try and keep it in pretty good shape.

the brakes are rubbish as i only have the leather pad and need the full rubber ones and may swap them out for soem fibrax period ones. thanks for looking.

biglev,

Since your Breezer #1 replica project has been aired on at least two Retrobike pages I've lost track of who said what, but regarding what I think about the making of replicas of Breezer #1: Fine by me, may they multiply. Far prefer it than nobody caring. Regarding how to mark a replica, here's a link to Richard Byrne's (Speedplay pedals) replica of his 1961 Masi Special. For anyone curious how frames are (were) built, this offers a glimpse:

One answer to the replica question is given in one of the last images.
