    Don Sharp

    Just read on another Katana site that Don Sharp of Katana fame in Australia suddenly died today. Condolences to the family. Sad news
    There is my opinion and then there is wrong!

    Very sad news. Don was always very helpful and enjoyed a good chat and knew his way around a bike that's for sure.

    R.I.P. Don.

    Yes, really sad news. I found out while sitting waiting for a flight in Sydney last Thursday.

    I was talking to him on the phone Friday week ago and had been laid up after a slip while working with his sister as well as fighting a skin cancer issue.

    Over the last few years he has made / turned up on his lathe a number of custom parts for a few of my builds and was so pedantic that everything was perfect.

    Condolences to his family, Dan, Les and Mary.

    Another weekly telephone I will miss.
