Hi, Brian, Our Mutual friend e-RICHIE mentions Corky Gulbranson in this article (http://www.richardsachs.com/rsachsmadeusa.html) -- perhaps he knows more? (about Corky -- we know he knows a bit 'bout bikes)

Jamie,

Any chance of finding a phone number for Guilbransen or a verified correct spelling? I live in San Diego and am a framebuilder currently, it would be great to hook up with a gentleman such as that. I'll bet I could extract some history from someone like him. Got all the tools I need, but it would be cool to see what American old timers used before I was even born. Let me know if anyone can help.
