    Guess the bike, first MOMBAT score for 2010

    We'll start with a very small clue and add pictures from there. There aren't any complete pictures yet so there will be no cheating!

    Looks like a semi-slick tire of some sort. Klein!

    If it is a nickle-plated Breezer, then I am glad found its way to MOMBAT rather than the hands of a collector, or worse, flipper.

    Didn't have tires when we got it so I just stuck something on there to keep it off the ground. Nice guesswork though. Wanna guess series and serial no?

    Well, you got the right vintage with the tire it looks like. I'd say series II.

    I'd have to look at the numbers again to see how they go.

    My guess is it's somewhere between 01 and 30 but not 29 and not 10?

    Nickle plated Breezers don't get 'flipped'.

    why are you anti-collector? a collector is typically very passionate for his object of desire and it also probably has a better chance of being fondled and ridden.

    nothing against FFB of course, I just don't get the disdain you mentioned.

    If you sense disdain, maybe I am projecting my feelings about the art and antiquities markets onto mountain bikes, but I tend to prefer museums to private collections. Of course I recognize that private collections are often what (eventually) help to stock museums, and I am guilty of collecting a few items myself.....

    It is nice that Mombat got it, they will preserve it and share it with others who can appreciate its history.

    Are those Magura levers stock? I have an near identical set (but black blades) that came on an '88 bike - I had no idea they were so much older.

    They say "Made in W.Germany" on them - that made me laugh.
    5 is the old new black; 6 is the new new black...

    Every time FFB picks up another classic, a VRC angel gets it's wings.



    Great job Jeff and Wes.

    These are pictures form the original owner. Once we get the tires, brake pads and rear derailleur changed out, we'll take some better pictures.

    I guess we are kinda in the middle. It is a "private" collection but it is on public display....for free. If it makes you feel better, we could charge you a couple of bucks to wander around

    This bike was offered to a couple of Portland area shops who could have made some serious $$$ if they knew what it was and the market value. Bad for them but great for us.

    If that bike in fact came from OR you probably saved the previous owners life because 10 people fell off their bikes here last year and drowned

    Great thread, Awesome find. I appreciate all the effort First Flight puts into their website and sharing info here on VRC. For a bike I will probably never see in person, what more can I ask for. I learn a lot when visiting their website, just like I have learned a little from this thread. Although, I have no idea how FB knew what he did with so little information (lucky guess)..

    As always,
    Thanks for sharing,

    I was 95% sure with just the first pic and the fact that Jeff called it a "score". I didn't know the tire was installed by FFB when I guessed, but that tire combined with the gold rim was all I needed.

    I'd settle for someone coming and airing up tires. When it gets cold, they all seem to go down faster. Let's see, 450 old bikes, 200 new bikes...........X 2 tires per bike.......X a couple of minutes per bike, probably should wipe it down at the same time so add a couple extra minutes.

    Somebody not doing anything for about a month

    We bought a bunch of those foam liners that Specialized sold. They used a 26 x 1 3/8" tube up inside them. Work pretty good but we only bought 10 sets of them and they were gone.
