Wonder how many here knew who he was? He owned Dales Wheels Through Time in Maggie Valley North Carolina..He had several businesses before he bought Dales Harley Davidsonin in Mt. Vernon Illinois at age 25, becoming the youngest dealership owner, with a loan from his father. He did very well there. Says he took a bear cub in as a deposit on a Harley once. Had the run of the place till it outgrew it's welcome. His son Matt worked alongside him. He had 350 plus antique motorcycles. All ran it sounds like. In 1997 He rode a 1917 Hendereson coast to coast. All this at the Mt Vernon Harley Davidson dealership.He sold the dealership in 2000, and toured country looking for perfect location for his motorcycle museeum, before settling on Maggie Valley, N.C, just off Blue Ridge Parkway. He passed away February third of this year at age 68. I looked up his obituary, and found it to be very interesting reading. Sounds like a place to put on my bucket list of places to visit.
