Wuss called me this morning to say he got a text from Bart that his Dad, Old Dude, passed away yesterday. He had been sick and in the hospital and was not expected to make the New Year and unfortunately they were correct. The hobby just lost a giant in the hobby and pioneer both as a racer and parts seller. Many bikes would not be on the road today had it not been for Clete. Always a gentlemen, some times to the point but beyond compare in the wealth of knowledge and willingness to help if you were willing to listen! He will be sorely missed and thoughts and prayers with Carol, Bart and the family!
