i really like the 1st breezer and the mountain goat and SF klein's klein but they were not bikes that i knew of back in the day, the one i wanted back in the day was the vit t, suprise surprise!
i think tallpaul has done a good quality no frills or fuss riders bike there and it is the one i would like to own so that's where my vote is going.
out of curiosity though, the mantis and the mountain goat, have these been restored or found in a sealed glass box? no offence meant though, the reason i ask is because i wonder if any effort of restoration has gone in to these by the owners or if they were found/bought as they are pictured. it seems these rare bikes seem to turn up in the US unused more often than overhere
but i like to know that the bikes have been used (maybe abused) then restored as opposed to unused other than a talking point from new.
Check the linked picture of the bike in its original state. It was ridden hard by Richard Cunningham and put to bed wet. It has been restored from end to end. (the restoration parts are better than the originals but finding an NOS Suntour 5000 kit would have to be near impossible.
