Keith Moore

No exaggeration, I was seriously saddened to hear about Keith Moore's passing today. As I understand it he died of an apparent heart attack in his shop at about 11:00 AM this morning.

Over the last several years I have purchased Triumph parts from LOTS of different sources. With the '51 I had comfortably settled into Moore's Cycle Center for every part I could possibly source through him. Keith always answered the phone himself. He only gave me precisely the "required" amount of crap when I asked 100 stupid questions and gave me tons of priceless advice too. Most importantly I could truly tell he wanted my business and cared about treating his customers right (despite my countless stupid weekly $15 orders). I had vowed if I ever made it to SoCal again meeting him face to face was a top priority.

Damn. I'm gonna miss you buddy.

Yep. A huge, huge loss to the Triumph community. Thanks for posting. Found this on a search.

Sad... Did you notice the bumper sticker in the upper right corner of that photo?
