Benefit Motorcycle, Muscle Car, Street Rod Ride In Memory of Troy Kyajohnian

Mr. Troy Kyajohnian passed away some two months ago from an undiagnosed heart issue.  Being no older than I this came as a great shock to me--the more so as he had done extensive work on Project Retro-Runner including the dash, wiring and suspension changes.

Troy left behind a wife and child and a great portfolio of work including the bike you see here to your left.  He was a wonderful craftsman and leaves a big hole to fill in numerous respects.

This past weekend, Keith Dube of Dube's Custom Machines put together a charity bike/car ride from his shop in Hudson, NH to the Broken Spoke Saloon up in Laconia to raise money for the American Heart Association to be donated in Troy's name.

The weather was perfect, the ride was wonderful with the NH State Police providing a guided escort to clear the way, lunch was great and a good time was had by all.

Vaya con dias Troy....
