Here's my recently finished 1979 VVA Topanga. The full story and all the photos can be found here: https://www.velocult.com/index.php/blog/
yeah, it's odd to research an odd rare bike only to tie the builder back to your family. it still amazes me.yo-Nate-y said:When I first clicked through I thought you guys had just got better at making 'period' photography. Glad I read the rest. Fantastic story----what an amazing coincidence!
haha, remember outside of about 200 people in the world nobody gives a rats a$$ about these old bikes.yo-Nate-y said:And that he (father in law) was able to dredge up the old photos. Cool stuff. You should curate them---get a photo and bike history exhibition up somewhere in SD.
the coins are cool i think. a friend of mine randomly found one on a trail in the LA area. i need to ask VVA if he ever scattered coins around on trails just for fun or if it actually got lost there after a Reseda to the Sea race or something.MABman said:Nice bike VC and a good story.
I have always been intrigued with this part about VVoA also.
As one of the 200, I miss your shop having a back room that served as a mountain bike museum.Veloculture said:haha, remember outside of about 200 people in the world nobody gives a rats a$$ about these old bikes.
Is he still around?Repack Rider said:Among his many talents, VVA designed typefaces.
Brilliant link JASSABRASIL!!!!JASSABRASIL said:My name is Marcelo, everyone I know in Brazil as "Jassa" I do not personally know the VVA, but I am a big fan of his, here I had the pleasure to interview you and make a full report about it published in a forum Brazil where I belong.
Tribute to VVA. Congratulations!
