    you want to see something pathetic, go to kustom kulture forum. they only have two page on this topic and it seemed like 3/4 didn't even know who Larry was. and here they are making money off what he pioneered.

    So sad by this news..:(
    Like on previous posts I think it would be a nice to send Larry out in style. Anyone who is attending the services lets try to get as many rides there as possible.
    Also just wanted to throw it out there..The Elks lodge close by in Huntington Beach has offered there lodge to any HAMB members who would like to get together for a informal gathering for Larry. Drinks are very reasonable and there is lots of parking. Please PM me if anyone has ?'s
  6. So sad to hear. I just heard. I've been working and out of touch with the rest of the normal world. May he rest in peace. I'm going to go and flip through some of those great Rodder's Journal articles on him.

  17. It's good to see that this thread continues to pop back up to the top. It is obvious how profound his influence was on all things in the motorcycle and automotive world.

    Larry gave the museum to me, while at the city of hope. I've been scanning photos for a while. We were going to film the museum ,a shot of Larry pointing to the picture, then while he talked about it we would go to the scaned photo. But that can't happen now. After the funeral I will talk to his son to see, when it needs to be moved, while I try to find a correct location for it. The last thing Larry had me do was to take pictures of how he located them, to keep them as he wanted them. Roger

    thats great Roger, glad to see everything will not be put back into boxes or even worse sold. be sure and let the word out when it is open so more people can come and see just how much this man did and meant to the kustom car community.
