totally bad ass... reminds me so much of the ABA days and Bicycles and Dirt and the sort of regional brands like this.  Freaking sick.

Both are bad ass and just as awesome as all your bikes. Well, perhaps the Nomura is even more awesome.

Those are good looking bikes which is no surprise considering the owner.

Since I know nothing of Navajo, a question: Are the frames any relation to Patteson? The head tube and rear triangle appear Patterson like.

Thanks Curt! 

No. No relation to Patterson. What started as Blazer in Texas ended as Navajo in Arizona. The Navajo mini and 20" std and pro frames were made in the Blazer jigs. If you come across any of these frames with no decals then the rule of thumb is if it is painted then it was a Blazer and if it was chrome it was a Navajo. Also the Rebel mini is the same frame as the Blazer and Navajo. Navajo only lived for two years. 83 and 84. In 84 the owner planned to send production to GT to try and stay above board but the rumor was that Gary Turner made a verbal gentleman's agreement to build Navajo for the 85 model year and then never built a single frame which put Navajo out of business.

 

Blazer and Rebel were intertwined in Tx and then Rebel moved to Tn to be built by Cycle Craft and Blazer moved to Az and became Navajo. 

Maybe Truly Odd can shed more light. I know he knows more  about this.
