Vale Fred White


A bit of sad news to report with the passing of Fred White. Fred was Bob’s ‘partner in crime’ and the master of the Southbend lathe. He worked with Bob professionally and in retirement, taking a major part in the creation of many home built engines. The article from Classic Bike Magazine gives a much better idea of their record than I can, so I’ll leave the details up to them. I only met Fred once but we got on right away and I was really pleased to have him on board for project Hercules. I guess he’ll just have to watch on from above now.

RIP Chap.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
