The bike is one of Dave Cook's creations. Dave owns Cook's Customs here on the east side of Milwaukee. He said he had that Norton motor just laying around and decided it looked so good he wanted to build a bike around it.

I believe she's launching at a drag race, and the rear wheel has spun and got a little out of line.

It looks as if she has everything under control, though. Wonder what her E.T. was on that run?

Do you know Don Rosene?

Yes, I know Don. I knew Ken when he had the Yamaha shop here. Worked for him briefly in, I think, 1965. I was just helping him with the new shop building, taking out some walls & such before the shop actually opened. I lived very close nearby.
I always wanted to ask him for a job, but was about to get drafted & I never did ask because he would have been on the hook to hire me back after I got out of the service.
I always regretted that I didn’t ask.
Last time I saw Ken was in the early ‘70’s. Really a great guy. I have some friends & acquaintances that knew him & would visit him down there. Someplace in Oregon I think.
At one point I had an e-mail addy & a maybe phone number for him. But I never got to talk to him.
Sure wish I had.

Ahh! Chiefrider, I found this old thread, check it out.
