mike the bike...

Don Dierking lives in arizona now but he was born and raised in azusa and he invited us to his house that he still keeps in azusa five minutes away from our workshop. the yellow helmet on the cover of a cycle illustrated is Don.


Don mumbled "well, it's gotta be something special..." and wrote something on the picture of his riding shot and...


gave it to us :)

we put him right next to Hailwood, of course.
"Lest we forget 'Mike the bike' and 'Pops'"

the real stories Don told us are something that we can't find on internet. we are so lucky to hear them from him. we absorb their spirits as much as we can and pass it on to the next.
