Kevin is no stranger to our group. He and his brother's have been bringing cool bikes to our meet since the beginning. He built this bike from parts that he's gathered over the past 2 years. Not a trailer queen, he built it to ride and race.

The Blaty family has won Bike of the Month twice in the past. Bill won in January 2010 with his 1968 Hodaka H100 John won in December 2009 with his 1969 Sears SR124.
