Bought my first Bultaco last year and Larry emailed me with lots of good advice. Sorry to hear this.

That are sad news, very sad news.

 

I had some conversation with Larry during the years not much but some, it started by a personal message why I haven't been at this forum for a longer time also about my Sherpa.

He was a nice guy, I will miss his input and the talk about Bultacos and so on. I really appreciated that he truely cared.

Thank you about the information:

That is very sad news. I exchanged many emails with Larry and he was always glad to hear about other Bultacos from Australia. Very sad news. Graham.

What a sad loss for our community - Larry knew his Bultaco's and was happy to share. The last time I emailed him with a question, he apologized for being late with the answer indicating he was sick but went on to give me the right advice. God's speed Larry......

Genuinely saddened to hear of Larry's passing. A true gent, who was always ready to share his knowledge. My deepest sympathies to his family and friends.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words.It would make Larry so happy to read them and to know that he had helped others in anyway that he could.

It,s just so hard to know that I cannot pick up the phone and tell him about it.

At least I know that all of the sections he is riding now are cleans and the sun is shining!

This is so terribly sad. Although relatively new to this forum, Larry helped me locate a gear for my model 10 and gave me great advice about various aspects of the rebuild.

He always came across as a true gentleman who truly enjoyed his bikes, his fishing and, more than anything, helping people.

I am truly shocked. I will miss him greatly.

Condolences from Ireland

 One of the old Buls he regularly worked on finished both days of rounds 1 and 2 at the Texas Nationals last weekend. He will be  missed by many. RIP Larry.

Thanks for posting that lineaway. I,m guessing that it was David on the red 199.I don,t know him personally but from Larry telling me about him.He sent me a pic of him riding down there last year or maybe the year before.

Very sad news.

In my very short time on here Larry answered loads of my very stupid questions with excellent advice, good humour and most of all patience.

Larry would go out of his way to help.  That is the best lesson he could teach any of us.  Ride on, my friend.
