An Old Road America Story: "WHERE DID YOU GET THIS BIKE??!"
Unexpectedly, a stranger walked up to Aksland and asked him if he knew where to get some parts for his bike.
King Kenny Roberts
Chuck Aksland back when he was Wayne Rainey's teammate, and mechanic at Daytona in 1984. The frame (Deltabox before Deltabox) on this bike was made from aluminum sheet in Kenny Roberts' garage in Oakdale, California. Rainey used the chassis later that season. As the story goes after he won a race with it he was t-boned by another competitor on the way to victory circle. Infamously, after that incident the bike only turned left.
