Whitney was born to run!


She sweats it out on the back roads of an American Dream, riding through the mountains on a life saving machine. Sprung from the city on a one way line, polished wheels moving her forward most of the time. Whitney let us in, we wanna be your friend. We’ll ride till we drop, and we’ll never look back again.

Remember this is 1980, so a 24lb. bike that could take the abuse Charlie was dishin’ it had my attention. He was polite when we talked and said anytime I was out in Fairfax I was welcome to come by his little factory.
