1978 Cook Bros. Racing

It took me 1 year to get this bike together for the 2007 Rockford show. The bike was painted by C-4. I polished the hubs and crank arms, and then had the logos laser etched back on. The bb cups and hubs i had annodized in blue. The bike has all Cook Bros components. Claude Murphy

Re: 1978 Cook Bros. Racing

Wow! I was wondering who`s bike that was. Did you bring home "best in show"? You have my vote for sure! (Followed closely by the 24" Skyway.)  Cook Bros. Rules!


Still searching for my missing bikes from BITD. 1979 Blue Max serial: CI9 221346 and 1977 Webco serial: 42667. Both were last seen at Spoke and Sport Bicycles in Spokane, WA around 1984. $600 reward if found!!

Re: 1978 Cook Bros. Racing

I don't build bikes. I just assemble them.
