I stopped by West Whittier Paint, where I get all my paint supplies. I ran into an old friend, a great man. His name is Porky... I've known this man since I was little kid, maybe 5 years old. My earliest memories were of him hangin out with my dad at our house in Whittier and other little biker parties and get togethers my father would have at the house. Porky has lived a life that could be written and made into movie, no joke! I have a tremendous amount of respect for this man, and glad to call him my friend. A true biker, innovator and great soul with the kindest heart. Here's a video of Trevelen from SuperCo explaining the engineering and innovations during the 1950s by a group of bike builders from East LA and Porky.
