Hi Jerry,

http://www.twowheeldrive.com/history.html

Apparently Dan Boone was the co founder of Two Wheel Drive and later left to open Desert Cycles in Socorro, NM.

I was able to also find some information that confirmed Dan Boone and Desert Cycles, but found no web site or indication that Desert Cycles still exists.

Hope this helps,
