Saturn (John Padgett)

Saturn Cycles/John Padgett Davis, California

“The majority of his work was done in Davis, California. He was meticulous in his finish work for both lugged and lugless frames. He readily mixed tubes to achieve a proper frame for the rider and the rider’s use. He made forks using his own blade bending fixture. Not all were custom as he did sell spec bikes through The Bicycle Business in Freeport Blvd. in Sacramento. His workspace was in his garage. His last address in Davis was on Pole Line Road. Previously he lived on 5th Street.”
