    I found an American Breezer
    As I was making my rounds around Montana and Wyoming last week I ran across an American Breezer for sale. I do not get anything if this bike sells I am just passing along some information. I was visiting Steve at Summit Bike and Ski in Bozeman Mt. (406-587-1064) and while in his basement checking it out I noticed what I thought was aa American and asked Steve if it was an American (no decals). Steve said it was and that it was a Breezer. It is there on consignment. Looks like a 16" or 18", I am not sure of the parts spec. but I did notice a purple King headset and purple Ringle seat post, I also noticed a Chrome fork. Sorry no photos. The bike did look like it was in good shape. I think they are asking $425.00. Good luck and happy trails.

    Any pictures? Not interested in buying, but interested in seeing. I worked with this guy in the early 90s named Josh Nowells (sp?) who was an OT pro on the east coast and I recall him riding an 'American' something or other as his mod bike. Polished aluminum with this fork that had massive aluminum legs. For the life of me I can't find any pictures of 'American' mtn bikes and it is driving me nuts.

    Never mind, I figured it out. I was missing the Joe Breeze connection there. I think Josh's trials bike was an American M16 with some kind of one off fork.

    It's possible (likely) the fork is a chromed Koski as that's the fork I recall being on those bikes.

    Hey Rob, did it look similar to this one?

    Rumphy,
    That looks like the bike to me. No decals and no adjustable stem.

    Sorta. I've only more recently decided I should have one to try/own.

    IIRC, the price tag on that one was on the high side of $1000. At the time of that picture, vintage mtb's were cheap and easy to get!

    Absolute in Salida had my old one hanging up for years. I don't know if it is still there or not but might be worth a call.

    Close to 2 for 1 but that Breezer was another guys that I am pretty sure we called Captain Klein but now that I think of it I don't know why we called him that. He used to own the lumber mill in Flag if I remember right. When my old Breezer (#130) got sold it had an IRD front end with an IRD U-Brake on the back. The Breezer pictured is no where near as shiny as it used to be, actually I don't think I ever saw a speck of dust on it.
