I was shocked to read of Reeds passing.
We both shared the love of Studebakers and back in day I remember selling him many parts for Avantis.
When I was moving from Long Island I contacted Reed to "gift' him with numerous exercise machines, and the English racer I received as a gift on my 13th birthday........the bike was mint.
Reed has been on my mind over the years and it was only today that a web search revealed the tragic news;-(
My thoughts are with his entire family, I greatly enjoyed knowing him and appreciated his friendship.
