Avanti Breeze?

Postby Mikey2hands » Wed Jan 30, 2013 9:02 am

Hi,

I just won this interesting frame on ebay and can't find any info on it anywhere?
It kinda reminded me of a skidstar frame, I really like the lines but haven't seen one like it before. I think the wheels are 26" so I might put a springer fork on the front and see how it looks with dragster handlebars. Should be an interesting project.

Has anyone seen one like it or have any information on Avanti Breeze? A google image search didn't even show 1 pic like this one.

Neat looking frame. I'd say its a hybrid bike - halfway between a cruiser and a road bike. Lots of potential to make something cool out of it.

After a bit of photoshopping this is where I might head with this project.

The wheels turned out to be 700c which was a surprise, and since the rear dropouts are tiny and I don't have any welding gear I may have to leave a 700c 7 speed wheel at the back and mount a shifter on the top tube or stem.

Any ideas or advice welcome..

If you want the looks of a single speed you could always use a DMR single speed conversion kit like this http://www.woolyswheels.com/shopping/in ... ers_id=108 Replace the seven speed sprocket with the single speed sprocket and some spacers, and the chain tensioner bolts up in place of the derailer. I used this to convert my mountain bike into a singlespeed and it worked great.

A different brand, but the principal is the same.
