Roy (we called him "Uncle Roy" ) sold me my first real motorcycle in July, 1949, a new Matchless 500cc. $ 795. He owned the All Makes Motorcycle shop. Jack Wilson was the mechanic. We picked up the bike, which was in a large wooden crate from London, England, at the railroad freight station in Waco, in a pickup. Jack assembled it. Roy was the AJS & Matchless dealer in central Texas.
Roy was a motorcycle mechanic for the army in WW11 where he worked alongside Durwood Inmon. When war ended he & Durwood opened an Indian cycle shop in Waco. For some reason, they didn't get along so Roy moved out & started his All Makes shop, selling AJS & Matchless (English bikes) & also California speed equipment for hot rods. It is interesting that Roy's middle name is that of his nemesis, Durwood Inmon.
"MATCHLESS MOTOR CYCLES, matchless in name and reputation. 18 Plumbstead Road, London SE 18, England"
Roy's passing is the end of an era.

If I am remembering correctly, Roy had a motorcycle parts shop behind his house back in the mid 70's. I think his son (Roy) used to work for Steakley Honda and left to join his dad in their own business. This was a long time ago, as I was in my late teens. I'm pretty sure this is him, and I just remember both of them treating me very good and helping me with my different projects. Roy (jr.) would always offer his advise on helping me get the right parts. Sorry for your loss, but heaven is celebrating his arrival.
