AEE's first bikes
Here is a shot on the cover of the first issue of Street Chopper of the Mindbender and the Corvair Trike. the knuckle was the bike that began AEE. Tom got hit on it and started making parts while recovering. One of the first if not the first motorcycle/chopper with a FULLY chromed engine. Trike was built and won the 1969 Oakland Roadster Show (AEE won it the following year with Bog Twin our 5 wheeler). Mindbender eventually ended up with low turnouts pipes and then a megaphone when it got sold off in 1971. My favorite bike up until then.
