He invented the whopper, and a few other things along the way, the whopper was definitely his claim to fame. He didn't invent the cliffhanger tho, Bill Freeman did.

Also just a side note Bill was one of the original founders of Standard Byke Company in 92alongside Kurt Schmidt and Rick Moliterno still rides for Wonder Wheels Trick Team ,loads of footage about i've seen .You'd be suprised how many riders today think a whopper is a new trick and not from 1990 it's only re surfaced again in recent years ,think Cliffhanger is a late 80's move Bill Freeman is credited with inventing it.
