    Wow, FB. What a fantastic choice of parts. Did you acquire it that way or did you start with just the frameset?

    It's a beauty!

    Mine too. Needless to say I was pretty happy to find it. I had a great time unpacking it as it was shipped in 4 boxes. Don't tell my wife, but it was way better than opening gifts in December.

    SFGirl, it came mostly as is. It came with WTB Classic wheels (too new) and a different seatpost (SR Laprade). So I switched out those two things. Oh, it had no grips either.

    Seriously, that is the cornerstone of any true Nor-Cal MTB collection

    you need to open a museum and charge admission that way you can write these bikes off your taxes......

    Major thumbs up on that one!

    I'm liking your dark backdrop too. Bring that on the next vintage ride

    And being the self-appointed shim-police, you need to align the shim gap with the stem clamp gap...

    Thanks guys. (Photos are ok, my newest camera is not working so went back to the old standby.)

    CRC, after buying this I can't afford that chimp anymore.

    SSMike, muchos gracias. If I bring this to a vintage ride I might need you to help me get on and off this thing. Stand over clearance is -.5".

    Ha! What, ties and sweaters don't excite you? 4 boxes?! Nice for you, though.

    I'm still drooling...

    What size it that? A friend used to own one similar, but an 18" I think. Back in the day JB would to solder a unique coin, matching the original owner's birth-year, as the stem cap.

    Nice find.

    That'd probably be better. Although it does have a great ride and feel even for me, but I only show about 2" of post.

    You're right. It is a bad match with the front straddle cable. I will need to remove it and put it in the Patina-izer over night and re-install.

    Wow. Really, really nice. I think you could take some good photos of this (like you already have), make some big prints, and sell 'em. It's just that gorgeous.

    Is the frame painted? The shot of the BB makes it look like it's bare steel, just clear coated.

    just amazing!

    hey dave,

    man, good work on this one! what an amazing bicycle, i have no idea how you find some of these bikes. I think your new nickname ought to be "the Tracker", because you are good! this must be the breezer you mentioned a couple many months ago, eh? what a bike.

    i'm stoked for you, you did a really nice job making the necessary changes, oh and i'll take the newer wtb wheels that came off of it, wouldn't want you to have those things in your way.

    was the Type I an upgrade? or was it an option? what was the other fork?

    i really dig the gold ukai's, how cool.

    and i agree with hollister, every set of TA caps i see around here are f'd.

    nice job man, that is a true keeper and a gem in your collection.

    Too cool.

    I get a little tired of all the '90s on the list and it's bikes like this one that keeps me coming back. It's also way too big for me so I'm not actually jealous.

    Yeah - stand over height is highly overrated as long as you can sit on the saddle. Pony up!

    Well, at 6'3" and with plenty of standover height, I volunteer to give that bike a test ride. It's not too often being big is an asset in the world of biking..

    Alright, we've got pics again.

    Thanks Nate! I'll get those wheels right out! (I do probably owe you something for the parts you've helped me with)

    djmuff, it's nickel plated.

    For those who asked about the size, it's a 23"! A monster in today's sizing, but not overly huge in its day. They were sized like road bikes up until the mid-80s or so and I ride a 21.5 - 22" on the road. But this is not a bike that needs to be in my size necessarily for full enjoyment. I'm just glad to have such a beauty and a piece of history. But yeah, ideally it'd be a bit smaller.

    Rumpfy, I'm only 5' 1" and a half.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. I will surely take it out on some rides, but for me something like this has to be treated a little more carefully than my average vintage rig. I'd hate to buckle a downtube or something.

    Oh, and the fork, yes original. I'm waiting on a little more info from Joe, but I heard from a good source today that when Steve Potts was apprenticing with Joe he probably built this fork and maybe even helped on the frame. Cool!

    thanks, SL.

    Rarest? Not sure. A favorite? Most definitely. Top three for sure, maybe more.

    Some new info from a good source. Steve Potts probably didn't make the fork because I think he had stopped working for Joe by '82. I have seen an '82 Potts so that makes sense.

    (Joe B said Scot Nicol might have been apprenticing at the time.)

    Another tidbit of info; in a time when there existed only 2-3 true mtb tires, Joe said the tread in the decal below was modeled after a Stumpjumper tire. Cool.

    Sometimes the smallest details can be the coolest! As if building these bikes at the time wasn't a huge undertaking of trial and error, design development etc... Joe spent time on that type of detail in the H.T. badge, right on!

    Of all the super-duper cool features on that bike, one of my favorite is the cable guides around the BB. For some reason i'm mesmerized by them.

    Alright, a bit more Breeze stuff. I mentioned to a vintage mtb friend off the forum here how I found it and I figure you guys would appreciate the story of how I found this one too. I won an ebay auction for one side of an early WTB sausage link shifter mount. Before he shipped it I told the guy I'd pay him double if he could dig around and find the other side. He told me he was just helping a friend of his clean out his bike stuff and just gave me his friend's contact info. I gave him a call and a bit later this thing arrived on my porch. Lucky find.

    Here's a picture of the 30th Anniversary for Repack. I believe Owen Mullholland (famous cycling writer) took this pic and it's right at the top of Repack. That's me in the rust colored shirt talking to Joe Breeze. This pic and a short write up were in BIKE magazine a year or so ago. Can anyone name all the dignitaries? Who is that really handsome guy over Joe Breeze's shoulder?

    Joe's super clean series III that he had on the anniversary ride. I fell in love with this thing up there. I think his is a few years newer than mine:

    Here's the blueprint for the Series II bikes in 1980:

    FB, I am sure if you want a Breezer for riding I might be able to talk Jeff into trading you his series III for yours! we wont even charge you extra for your fork that had to be put together out of pieces unlike ours...The early Breezers have to be some of my favorites, its wonderful walking into the shop every day and being greeted by the Series II and Series III beside each other

    FB - I thought something from your Potts' collection was the greatest. But this one is over the top.

    We can talk, wES. I'm sure we can work something out if we keep Jeff out of the loop.


    Thanks Joe. When are we riding? Nisene?

    Probably not my favorite bike that you have posted, but classic and lovely all the same. Has a sort of English touring bike look about it, though much more elegant.

    Why the handsome guy over JB's shoulder is none other than RBI.

    What a wonderful score f-b. You can always ride it by putting one leg through the main triangle. A true beauty and what I like to see on the forum.

    Thanks Yetified. And that's correct. Looks like he's talking to "headman" with Seekay, Alan Bonds, and Owen's tandem friend to the right.

    Rode it around this weekend and it's not as bad as I thought. Almost 3" of post showing. Just would need to be a bit careful on those off camber get offs.
