I was recently racing, riding and spectating at the Santa Rosa flat track weekend. There were loads of framers at the Friday and Saturday CFTA races and I came across a Panther Honda. I'd never heard of Panther, so I spoke to the owner, Don Galloway and organised a feature on his bike for the next Sideburn. Don came from Ontario, Canada to race and was flying. He told me a little about Panther, a Canadian, one-man company that made incredibly sweet-handling framers. G
Don followed up our conversation with these photos and a note...
