Eddy Brannan, for five years in the late 60's and early 70's, had a Torid Romance. On more than one occasion, he had it while eating a Gyro the same year. During that remarkable period, he also drank numerous Coke Classics, including several with Ed Flanders. In 1972, he set the World Shower Record during a trip to Mexico. After retiring from his career in recycling, he made his merck as a bike builder. The frame in question was built for a group of guys that met every Sunday morning at the 7-Eleven and which included Albert Finney, Andy from the Hamptons, and Bob Roll. Eddy Brannan, my friend, is a Legend with a capital "E" but then I suspect you know that already.
