Jon, In the course of doing research on Dick Power, I had the good fortune of contacting Lynn and have several hours of interviews with both her and her brother (also a good rider back then). As you say as nice as the bike is, it pales next to the character of Lynn. Best, Edward Albert Chappaqua, New York, U.S.A.
