Reminder. George's bike "the Queen" is for sale, and it is tucked away in a WTB, WTS, etc thread that Folkie started in the appropriate section. I think you really need to know to look for it to even have a clue that it is there.

George's son Alan is selling off whatever bike stuff that George had so if anyone is interested I can get you in touch with him.

I'd like his contact info. Can you shoot me a note?

Pete, kudos to you for the reminder.
Good if ASW buys it!
I was under the impression that George had quite a collection of fasteners.

Still thinking about George passing, Bummer. Ride on George.

I never met George face to face but we exchanged a few messages and he offered help during the Iron Butt Rally if I was in his area.

RIP George
