Just read some sad news in the March issue of Old Bike Mart - Dale Walksler, the founder and curator of the Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley, North Carolina, passed away peacefully with his wife by his side on Feb 3rd after a four-year battle with cancer aged 68.

Those of us in the UK may well be aware of Dale, his son Matt and the Wheels Through Time museum and its 300 or so (running) bikes dating from the early pioneers through to the ‘60’s from TV programmes such as American Restoration, American Pickers, Chasing Classic Cars (with Wayne Carini) and What’s in the Barn?

There's nowt as light as a hole, so add lightness.

Nitro doesn't add power, it multiplies it! Bob Loux, running 10.07 secs @138mph on a 650 normally aspirated Triumph drag bike in 1965!
