Not good news from Peter Williams:
Peter is very ill and already a few weeks in the hospital.
He is a fighter and he will win again, but if you can mail him a few words do it please.

He's been getting a lot of attention via my John Player Norton group on fecebook.

Great guy, and not an exaggeration that he is a legendary standard-bearer for Norton.

I only heard this yesterday from our Velo club. I will try to see him as he is welcoming visitors. I met him at John Hudson's house in Pudset 30 years ago when I was racing a TZ350G. He signed my Commando brochure.

I met him on the IOM several years ago at a Norton get-together. Really nice guy and very willing to talk to folks. I have a signed T-shirt. Sadly I can't wear it because the signature would come off in the wash. ;)

Any knowledge of why he is in the hospital?

Myeloma I believe.
I've been lucky enough to meet him on a few occasions and attended a couple of his interviews hosted by Jim Reynolds.
A nicer bloke I have yet to meet.

I have read a fair bit about Peter's work with Nortons. With the knowledge of hindsight, it is much easier these days. I will try to write to him.

Yes, I enjoyed the book. I bought a copy from him a few years ago at the Stafford classic bike show.
