|Cycle CMA Oct 1973|
This Special was built by a Duane Yerky of Akron Ohio in the early 1970s. Starting with two neglected and worn Rapides, he designed and fabricated a stainless steel frame, modified the engine to Black Shadow spec and installed a 1970 Triumph front end. An aircraft machinist by trade, he did all the work himself and the attention to detail is shown below.
I wonder where it is today.
