    Just a rumor, hopefully.
    Have bought from him many times when I just started in the hobby.

    He just listed a bunch of stuff on ebay, so probably just a weird rumor.

    Someone was told at a local bike shop that he had passed? That's all I know.

    Maybe he’s taking the year off dead for tax reasons.

    Dan is a SUPER nice guy and an asset to the hobby. We have done lots of business, chatted on the phone, and he's 100% in all areas. (I hope people say the same nice stuff about me when I'm either dead or rumoured to be....ha!!) I can make "light" of this based on it being a bad rumour. The best of happiness and Health to all Cabe members."Merry Christmas Happy New Year" from the Great White North!! eh?... Cheers...Bob

    He might have just passed the bike shop in his truck.

    I've known and dealt with Dan for over 20 years. Never had any issues.

    He has been nothing but straight up with me and a great resource for badly needed parts. That scared the crap outta me!
