1980 Breezer Series II 

Like all Breezer frames of this vintage, this one was hand built by Joe Breeze. This bike was personally assembled by Breeze for Barnaby Angell, a friend and fellow student of Joe's from Tamalpais High School.  Barnaby had been riding fat tire bikes since the early 1970s. His brother, Josh Angell, and Joe invented the Breeze & Angell Hite-Rite Seat Locating Spring, one of the most successful mountain bike accessories ever.  This is the ninth of twenty-five bikes in the second series of Breezers.  Other than that, just check out the pictures below.
