Aeroscott,

Fred sold me three bikes, a 1977 250 Bultaco Pursang, a CZ 175 Sport streetbike and the Toad. I did not not know Danny that well, only from the shop and at the track. Fred had him on a 1977 125 Bultaco Pursang that was heavy and slow compared to the Japanese stuff at the time, but he would keep up with anyone out there. I raced against Danny at French's Camp, near Garberville. We also raced at Ruth Lake and the Eureka Fairgrounds locally. Danny, along with Lance Burgess from Phillipsville, were among the fastest riders in Humboldt County at the time. I am not surprised that Fred helped your friend on a Husky. (Although he never sold them, Honda of Arcata did.) Fred helped out many up and coming riders at that time, regarless of what they rode. He would work on anything and everything.
