Subject: [CR]Dick Power

I have owned several Dick Powers and raced on one for several years. I'm pretty sure that he was building frames into the sixties. The guy that would be a great source of information is Harold Guilbransen (Sr.). I'm not sure I spelled his last name correctly. He lives in San Diego now. Harold was a frame builder here on Long Island during the 60's and 70's under his nick-name "Corky". I know that he was friendly with Dick and and that they traveled to Europe together to visit frame builders there. Corky pretty much picked up where Dick left off. His son, Harold Jr., was a national caliber track rider and Corky was active in coaching our club: the German Bicycle Sport Club. When Corky moved to California in 1995 he offer to sell me his tools and residual lugs and tube sets. I passed and I regret it now. Jamie Swan
