    1991/2 Breezer Lightning Pro

    Hi .... picked up this Breezer last week, a few scratches here and there but not too shabby.
    These are the 'as-collected' pictures.
    Just stripped it down for a bit of a polish, lube and new BB. Today I will fit some XC Pro Cantis and levers.
    I'll up-date with the fresh look.
    Cheers
    Carl

    ...very nice. I love well-worn Flites! The sort of out of chronology Hite Rite is cool as well. Appropriate for the Breezer's surfy-retro styling. That paint has always brought back fond memories of San Clemente/Onofre and somehow works aesthetically--could have been an easy fail.

    That is a really sharp looking ride. While my tastes are often quite a bit more outlandish than this one, I have always thought the breezers paint to have a classic and tasteful look. Nice bike for sure.
    Looking for:
    • Bontrager Comp crown, 1" threaded
    • Syncros Revolution, drive side 172.5

    Proper etiquite would dictate that such offers be made via private message rather than on the open forum.
