    I love the goofy 1940s dialogue. Great stuff!

    Interesting to see how times have changed. All it takes to be a bike company these days is a connection with a Chinese frame manufacturer and a web site or ebay account.
    Friends don let friends ride road bikes.

    That was really enjoyable, thanks for the link.

    What's very interesting to me is the contrast in manufacturing practice from then to now. Nowadays it is very rare to find a factory with all of those processes being done on-site: Forging, forming, rolling, welding, brazing, baths, paint, etc. It seems more common now for those processes to all be farmed to smaller, more specialized job shops.

    Cool stuff!
