Hey Neil. Yes, I believe I remember you. I joined in late March or early April 1972, toward the end of my senior year at UCLA, and worked Friday nights and Saturdays until my mid-June graduation, then full time that summer and again Fridays nights and Saturdays as a grad student during the 1973 school year, continuing well into 1974. I believe you were working in the Bekins building shop when Alan had left a nearly unsalvageable wheel for me to true, as an entrance exam.

Alan did begrudgingly give me Saturday 24 June off so that I could ride in the L.A. Wheelmen double century.
