Steam-Sickle






Ray Clift was born in August, 1912, in Bellingham, WA, and his working years were spent in photography, machine shop, mechanical engineering and drafting. Ray and I were married in 1973, so I was not an eye witness to his early endeavors. All I have are some photos, his notations, and memories of things he mentioned.
“Ray must have sold or given the motorcycle to someone, probably before he moved to Seattle, WA, about 1949. I remember that an old friend of his told him that he had seen what he thought was the motorcycle, lying abandoned and rusting in a field.”

DUST


The Good and Fine people at DUST where kind enough to send us some summer riding gloves to try out next season. I had to retire my good weather riding gloves of 35 years last spring and have been trying to find something without any armour in it! (not that easy!) The DUST folks were nice to send me a pair. Check them out HERE
