Jim Compton, of Comtek, produced somewhere around 20 bikes total. There were several hard tail mountain bikes and at least one hybrid but most of his bikes were full suspension pull shock bikes similar to this one. Two of the full suspension bikes were built with 20" wheels as inspired by the Mouton bicycles. This is one of the later bikes and was built for his now ex-wife and was ridden very little. The frames are stitch MIG welded which Jim learned while working on the Minuteman missile program while working at Boeing. Jims son, James, also has the fabricator gene. After playing fullback for the Washington Huskies, James won the 2007 Biker Build Of Challenge on the Discovery Channel.
