The great pioneer of kustom Bicycles

The new issue of "Bike Rod and Kustom" has an article on the first great pioneer of the kustom bicycle movement. His name was Bob Brown, of Hayward California. Read this and other related articles on the history of kustom biking at BR&K.

That's a great article. I was unaware of him.

That's cool that Big Daddy Roth bought a custom bike from him.

Thanks.
