Definitely "was"....Closed down about two years ago... Todd, I am curious, how do you know Ron Cooper didn't make this particular bike? I understand a number of builders worked at & for Allins.. How can we tell which builder did a particular bike? Or if a particular bike was made in-house? What's the secret to determining this? Thanks in advance!

I vaguely remember seeing that book in the Flower Power days. Can anyone supply a scan of that Allin section? Thanks Dale
