What could I do than obey to the "Kaiser" :wink: :D

well only to the first order because I could not resist taking pics again

Hope it deserves it, before getting a bit dirtier :D

Thanks to all the retrobikers that have made it real ( France , GB, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland ) :wink:

Quite close to original ( not catalog but backdraft 390 can't be found) and alas I am french so lets have a bit of french parts :wink: )

For the moment went for the silvery 217 SUP on Xt hubs ( as originals hubs were)

With the big section tyres, I believe it makes the look a bit lighter

Hope you will like it 8)

That is 100% lovely. It looks so right and I love the Ritchey cranks. Why can't I find any decent square taper cranks!!!!!!!!!!!

Very nice, sympathetic build. I love these old high end breezers.

Pure Class.

One of the best looking bikes I've seen for a while.

Really great build and very unusual to see an old Breezer with such good paintwork

Only had to look at my admittedly lower down the scale Breezer for the paint to come off
