This bike represents Cooks original design and fabrication in its purest and most cost effective form. It is also a lot of fun to ride.

At the time that Dave entered into a partnership with John "JP" Persitza, who now acts as his business manager, this bike was the earliest example of a complete ground up Cook Custom that had not been sold. Consequently, JP purchased the bike to assure he would always possess an early example of Dave's work.
