However it suggests that the looming presence of the factory that inspired four of the most famous Freeway Tribes (aka gangs) who adopted totemic animals as their symbols.
Little Maureen would secretly help her father with bike designs. According to a print advertiement in The Melonweed Daily Star Picayune, Corley bikes are "working class" and can be disassembled by anyone without technical expertise. Each part has an individual ID number for easy replacement according to its 2-year guarantee.
