Clete from Old Dude Vintage . . . 84D

I see on the web, Clete from Old Dude Parts had passed away.  I talked with him (I think) at Davenport before I knew who he was . . .  Then I talked with him over the phone many times at Old Dude, when I needed parts and had questions.  I believe his son (who was at Davenport this year) and helped me, sold me some special fasteners, will keep the company going.  A great ol' guy who I never knew was a racer himself . . . and a really good one.  I could have picked his brain on all types of WR, KR and XR stuff . . . gone forever.  Go Fast / Turn Left - RIP Clete.
