Mick Walker

Post by in-two »

It was sad to hear that Mick Walker passed away last week. A backbone of Ducati knowledge and enthusiasm in the U.K. and Europe, he and his business kept the brand alive through very hard times. He wrote a number of definitive books and knew enough about Ducati to fill a library. I met him several times in the early'80's whilst trying to keep some singles alive, and would always be rewarded by the parts I needed and half a days excellent conversation. I hope you can join me in offering our sympathies to his family, he will be missed.

I managed to find a copy of his restoration guide, just a few months ago. Sad to hear that he passed away. My condolences to his family.

His brother Rick was a great help to me in the early 80s when I first got my GT750. He had a minted one squirreled away in his garage - reckoned it was the best bevel drive available (no bias at all!).

In the high latitudes of Finland, in the parching heat of Africa, under the most different operating conditions these motor-cycles run to the satisfaction of their owners.
