    DKG vintage parts museum

    Dave has been adding stuff to his museum section. I was amazed to find out some of the stuff he has made for the bike industry (as well as others). Check it out @ http://www.dkg-cnc.com/museum.html

    the two trials bikes I always liked:

    That bike and this guy's, Jim Tre (something) , I cant for the life of me remember his last name, Greek guy. really nice guy and GREAT trials rider I think he even was one of the top three riders in the US at some point. We used to ride with him on Sundays in the GG park. I heard he eventually got Charlie to build him a Cunningham trials bike

    Never saw it in person, I believe he moved out of the city. But man, those two trials bikes are two bikes I'd love to try......

    anyone ever see that bike?

    Perhaps, if they are one and the same bike....


    Unfortunately I never saw the bike. I had lost touch with him but I ran into a mutual acquaintance he saw me on mine, after we got talking, he mentioned Jim was riding a Cunningham trials. I even remember a blurb about it in MBA or FTF or something.

    Did Dave end up with it? Here I was thinking it was time to get out the white pages

    Interesting.....

    Not sure. The website there says there were two; one with a 20" wheel and one with a 24" wheel...

    I like the upper right corner of the pegboard shot. Some neat stuff there. Above the roller cam arms you can see what looks like a bunch of cams on a sheet of aluminum:

    Tregonis lived in New York for a while, I used to see him riding the boulders in Central Park on the Cunningham Trials bike. Nice guy, incredible rider. Last I heard(14-15 years ago) he was coming home to SF to work as a butcher.

    Truly a wealth of useless information.

    Too funny,
    Yea, that where I met him also, riding boulders in Golden Gate Park....must have been close to 18-20 years ago. Man time sure flies....

    Truly a "champion". Quiet unassuming guy with incredible riding and control skills. If I remember right he was one of the top three riders in the US at some point.

    Did you get to see his bike? Was it the one pictured on the DKG site?

    I want to say(and I know this sounds stupid) that the Cunningham Jim had was similar but different to the one on DKG's site If memory serves, the frame/fork were more conventional but the seat/seatpost were pretty much identical. Jim's had rollercams and the typical CUNNINGHAM logo as well.

    Truly a wealth of useless information.

    That corresponds with what I had heard too.

    It was an actual Cunningham trials bike, different from Dave's bikes....

    Yep,
    Lots of programming time on that board. Real nice ecclectic mix of projects and materials. I like that Bay Area Ridge Trail conference table !!

    I dived into the files (again) to locate the rare pix of the bike you guys are discussing, called "The Verdict." (Trials, verdict, get it?) You can see part of it in the photo of Dave. Here's the rest.

    Repack, those shots came from the "Trials" edition of FTF didn't they? I am holding a trials comp at CDM May 6th along with a Vintage Bike Rally just another flashback!
