     Mike Appel was one of the original Trek builders, and later a painter for Trek.  
     "...maintained pretty close contact with Trek, and a number of Trek builders used to hang out at his shop, including Joe Starck, Dave Tesch (both later with Masi CA), Chris Fiorini (with Waterford), Kelly Gamble, and myself.
