Don Walker Throwback Stayer Bike at NAHBS

donwalker_stayer-1

This throwback stayer bike by Don Walker was making a repeat appearance at the show and I had to give it another shot. Stayer racing is a type of racing where people ride purpose built bikes like this within the draft of a motorcycle on a banked track, reaching pretty incredible speeds in the process. The “backwards” fork and braced saddle and bars are all meant for stability at speed. Newly built to resemble bikes from the 1950′s, this bike has custom Curtis Odom hubs and chainring and genuine wooden rims for that period look. www.donwalkercycles.com
