Diggin' the Doctor

Don't know about you, but I am really enjoying Dr Sprocket's regular column in GKM. I haven't heard better first-hand tales of riding choppers in LA in the sixties and seventies.

In the next issue, the good Doctor relates the transformation of his $500 Knuck (mentioned in the current mag), including a makeover in the late sixties by none other than the legendary Tom Burke at B&O Cycles. As you can see, this incarnation was pretty radical, but look closely at the photo and you'll see the bike has been in an accident. Dr S was riding behind a drunk tow truck driver who swung a left across his path and whose hook caught the bike... I'll leave you to read the rest in issue 30, out December 1.
