Allyn Hinton

Wife of biker TJ Hinton, Allyn has always had a strong mechanical aptitude. It served her well in auto shop and then as a working mechanic (back when women just didn’t DO that sort of thing) and later when she trained as a motorcycle mechanic. Her favorite Star Trek character was Scotty because he was the guy down in the engine room making the ship go.
