  • Lost another old time user, Supersportster RIP

    Well, we lost another long time friend. Oct 28, 2023. This person, Dick Johnson, SuperSportster, I have known for over 53 years. Rest In Peace my old friend
    I knew he was a mechanic and teased him with the Bearcat 4 stroke 55hp engines.
    Then he became hooked. Last count, he had maybe 5 of them plus Lots and lots of extra parts.
    Some or most of that will show up here for sale.

    Wow Joe, what happened?
    i think i talked to Dick around 5 years ago, he called about his 85. Might have been even farther back.

      Well, in the last 6 years he started putting on extra weight to the point he was having lots of trouble getting around. Then his heart just gave out.
      We were in contact several times a week ever since email started..
