From the Hall: Harry "JR" Kelley

The American Motorcyclist Association is saddened to learn of the passing of 86-year-old AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer Harry "JR" Kelley.

Kelley was best known for founding the successful motorcycle parts and accessories company, KK Motorcycle Supply, headquartered in Dayton, Ohio. But Kelley was also a top national racer, a motorcycle dealer, the sponsor of several nationally ranked racers, and a race promoter and tireless fundraiser for Dayton-area charities over the years. Kelley was elected president of the AMA in 1971 and helped guide the association out of financial difficulties.

From the Hall: Aub LeBard

The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame mourns the passing of another of its own, 1998 inductee Aub LeBard.

Aub LeBard was co-owner of the Lebard & Underwood motorcycle shop in Los Angeles, as well as a top off-road racer in the 1940s and 1950s. Identified over the years as a BSA rider, LeBard won the Big Bear National Enduro three years (1949, 1950, 1951) and was a top desert racer of his era.
