December 1988 advertisement

26 08 2009

This is a classic old Aubrun add. Shows first two factory flyers, Todd Corbitt and Danny Millwee, both I believe were living in SoCal at the time. What I like best about this add is the cool Mitsubishi Factory Van. Years later when I would co found Hyper Bicycles, that van was still an inspiration to my partner and myself. We also wanted a trick looking team vehicle.

You know I saw you teaching at a clinic once and stole some of your teaching techniques for my clinics.
