This photo is of the original and best known AEE bikes all in one spot at one time. I helped set up this shot and believe it is the only one of this many AEE bikes in one spot. In the back row left to right...Corvair Trike and Big Twin (both Oakland Roadster Show winners, back to back)...front row is the Shovelhead, then the one that started it all the Mindbender, then Really and finally Supersport. Each had different looks over the years and this was taken not long before three of them left the stable. Enjoy.

by the way first wing tank ever constructed for a chopper was for "Really", the Honda 350 in the picture. Dave Brackett had never built a chopper before and just kept bending stuff up until he got that wing tank. It was so well received it went in to production. He went from that to building 3 more in that picture within a year or so......

Yup, Thomas Michael McMullen and Rosemarie McMullen made up TRM Publications. Originally published Street Chopper then a whole lot more following that including the Chopper Guide catalogs which were part catalog, part how to and part feature articles. Certainly Street Chopper was the hosue mouthpiece for AEE and contributed greatly to it's success.
However no matter how much you promote your self you still have to deliver and AEE did for 7 solid years. Think about this, on some days in the early 70's they shipped $40,000 worth of parts in a single day that would be over $200k today! Any way you slice it that's a bunch of fucking chopper parts.
