Great time and good folks. Kevin, thanks for the lift and nice to see your collection. Friendly group of riders just out having a good time. I may plan my San Diego visits around this . I had a bit of wind burn from the Strand! Fun to see you guys still have the speed, you were gone like rockets once we hit the Strand ...and with a headwind! Hope to return soon, Joe

That Confente looks very familiar. A friend of mine bought one and from what I remember it was the same color and size looks about right.
I remember we went to visit the workshop in L.A. and met Mario who as we know sadly passed away not long after at a young age.
He did not have it for very long and sold it to someone here in San Diego so I am thinking it could be the same one.

I know one went to his family.
They don't turn up often.
Maybe mostly the transactions are private now.

reviewed again and found the white and yellow Confente hiding in the second row.
Owners are not super braggadocio, even masked up like the lone ranger in a way, or ready to hold up the Coaster.

Love that color. One of my grail bikes is an Electric Blue one in my size with the "playing card" graphics package.

I would also love to make this ride sometime in the future.
Would be great to meet Joe Bell as I have several classics which he repainted.
