I learned this evening that Bob Williams passed away last month.
I have fond memories of the Team Arrow motorcycle streamliner and of Bob riding his CB750, from his wheelchair...there was a man who didn't give up when facing adversity.
God Speed Bob.

Sorry to hear that!  embarassed cry cry
Got a chance to spend some time working with Bob and his crew - he was a genuine racer and a great guy!
This photo was from the 2010 Meadowbrook Concours where his streamliner was a big attraction and won some awards.

I'm sorry to hear about Bob Williams. On my first trip to Bonneville, he arranged a room swap for me at one of the casinos and let me hang around the Arrow pit. Nice fellow.
