Charlie Cunningham

Thought this notice would catch the attention of the vintage bike enthusiast community in regards to Charlie Cunningham. His accident and crisis is explained in the link.

(Mod's, if inappropriate, please move to another section. Thank you)

Charlie, thoughts are with you.

Charlie is best known as the man who made the first mountain bikes out of oversized aluminum tubing. But his MTB innovations were numerous as outlined in the link posted by crank_addict.

Charlie is an artist and an inventor, not a business man: He could really use your help right now as he faces a long regimen of rehabilitation once he comes home from the hospital. Please consider donating via the link in the first post.

Thanks,
Brent

That hit close to home, I known from very bitter experience just how long these brain injuries can take to heal. Too bad they only do credit cards...
