I was in Vietnam with the 1st Marines when the Corvair trike was being built. I got a hold of several issues of Cycle Guide showing the construction. The articles kept referring to the guys at AEE did this or that or whatever. The photos clearly showed the inside of the old D&D Cycles on San Fernando Road. When I got home, I bought a 57 Pan, the very next day. I ended up at D&D for something and asked Boyd DeFrance Sr. about the trike. He said that he did the lions share of the build, but Tom McMullen wanted him to give him a, considerable, break on the labor in exchange for free advertising. Boyd refused, said he didn't need the publicity since his business was taking off with D&D Distributors and, later, Jammer. So all of the build credit was given to AEE instead.
