As soon as I learned about the new store, I got in touch with Alan to suggest the next stage of what's needed to get North American (or World) youth and their fathers involved in bike kustomizing : pre-fabricated display units stocked with the most desirable, affordable and simple-to-install kustom bike parts from the C.U.S . line, to be sold by local stores everywhere. I remember when I walked into my hometown Western Auto store and first saw inexpensive apehanger handlebars, banana saddles and other kustom goodies on display. I was in college at that time, and already owned a car, of sorts. But seeing those wild bike parts reminded me that my younger bro Dave's old 20" cantilever-framed sidewalk bike was gathering dust, rust and bird crap in our barn, and just begging to be used for something interesting. So, I bought the kustom parts, as well as some fresh wheels and tires from Western Auto's normal bike parts inventory, and built a kustom muscle bike.
