I never met Woody in person, but we sure talked alot.
Yeh for sure . Were they not among the first ( in the states ) to specialize ?
They were the first to run a trials only shop that I can remember.
Woody Dame, Jack Stites & Graham Foster....
Thanks for the memories...
What about B&B Specialties, I used to get Renthal handlebars from them in 1974, they were somewhere out west, don't remember where, pretty sure still have a catalog in the basement with all the cycle news papers.
originally owned & operated by chuck west & family out of their basement in Cookeville, TN.
i delivered a truck load of inventory to Woody & Jack Stites after the sale... early 80’s???
sad that cancer took Jack.

My sordid past. Chuck West and I in 1980 Sidecar Trials Nationals, Kansas City. Had a lot of fun, met a lot of good (some strange) people. We rode with doctors, lawyers and an actual Indian Chief. Oh, the good ole days!
a fine man, great trials rider & champion father. glenn McNeal has passed.
Yes, Glenn was a fine man, raised two outstanding trials riding sons. Condolences to his family.
his son michael also rode some. his oldest son passed last year? forgive me, but i've forgotten his name.
That's 2 in 3 days for me. Very sad to hear. I rode with the McNeal's during most of the 70's.
i think the family is doing a memorial later because of the covid.
ill keep the forum updated

I hate the fact that motorcycles that I consider "Modern" are now Vintage!
Hell the original TY 250 Yamaha is pushing 50 years old now. Beta Zero's are 30 years old.
It is a bitch to be pushing 60.
Oh to be 60 again...
Oh , trust " US " ...
There's more to come .
