This charismatic sales manager of CCE until 2002? This hardcore fan of Mohamed Ali and personal friend of Jesse James?

The latest one covers Antonio custom made logically around a rigid frame WWC. These bikes are part of the interest that begins to arouse on both sides of the Pyrenees the approach Los Tremendos Latinos.

"We are not a club or something," says Antonio, "everyone is welcome! We are all great, right? "
