Another interesting note on Corky Guilbransen: In the 60's Corky built a motor pacing derny to train his son Harold Jr. and his training partner Marc Lobit. The derny was built from an old Schwinn balloon tire frame and fork, and the wheels and motor from a 50 cc Honda motorcycle. Today the machine is in a friend of mine's basement. Sometimes I think about resurrecting it....I'm sorry that I missed everyone yesterday at Larz Andersen; I didn't have enough stuff to make it worth the trip. I did the century (solo) on the "Tour of the Hamptons" instead. It was hot. Jamie Swan
