Here's a cool old bike I'm currently working on- a 1977 Series 1 Breezer-#5 of 10 made. One is now in the Smithsonian Museum, one is in the Shimano Museum, and one is in the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame Museum-the other 7 are privately owned.

It's called a Mixte, or Bi-Lateral or twin lateral frame design-for the two small diameter lateral stays front to rear.
