Bob Ross Rest in Peace

I was recently informed that Bob Ross has passed. Bob owned Motorcycles Only in San Pedro, used to be Eddie Ryan's place. Bob raced his JD at Catalina and Big Bear events. His JD's name was Hortence. She had boobies for knee pads. If anyone else has some history on Bob please share it with the rest of us.

Jedd, I'll send you a couple of photos Monday and an article I wrote on Bob and Eddy. The 101 Scout I rode for 15 years stood in Bob's shop for 30. Rich P.S. He was a great rider and a friend to many.

I have one of Bobs old motorcycles and would love to talk with someone about it.
Thanks Tom

Hi Jesse,

My name is Marty Beaulieu and I was a friend of both Bob's and Troy Ross. George Hood has done work for me and is also building me a JD bobber very similar to Bob's. Like you I have one of Bob's old bikes, a 53 BSA Gold Star Bob rode in the desert before he acquired Hortense. Call if you'd like to talk. 617-510-1243
