Vale : Rob Smyth

3 Oct

It was with great sadness that we have heard of the passing of Rob Smyth. Rob was a member of COMCC for the past 21 years and, with his knowledge of all things motorcycle related and his skills in casting and manufacturing of parts, will be sadly missed. He was one of the more active members of the club: regularly attending mid-week and moped rides. He was always approachable at our meetings and social events and had time for all members who he came into contact with.

Rob loved pre 1930 AJS motorcycles and he even owned and restored a rare AJS car, which he showed at the All British Day event and drove in the 2016 Bay to Birdwood. His other passion was making steam trains – a memorable club meeting saw him show one of his trains, which was 35 years in the making. 

Our condolences are offered to Rob’s wife and family – he will be sorely missed by the club.
