Nameplates Case 5, detail 9

<-- Last Back to the start -->

Notes: One of my most unusual head badges is the Lighthouse (the smallest one on this page),
the plate of framebuilder Tim Neenan who built some of the earliest mountain bikes and helped design
the first mass-produced MTB, the Specialized Stumpjumper. Interestingly, he usually builds
road frames and that’s where this head badge came from. Speaking of mountain bikes, the Breezer
is from a bike built by Joe Breeze, who was one of the earliest pioneers of off-road bikes. To the
left is part of a Mountain Goat plate, made by Jeff Lindsay, another fat-tire framebuilder from way
back who helped the sport grow and prosper.
