Oz truckie and fabricator Luke Winkler AKA "FR700" passes...


Recommended Posts

Not sure if he was well known in trucking around his adopted home of Australia or if he's ever been on this forum, he was quite active in the motorcycling world where I know him from. Here's the obit on the sidecar forum of advrider.com: 

Curmudgeon from Bulimba area passes after lengthy battle with cancer and life.
Luke Winkler AKA FR700 passed away 8/25/19 at his dwelling in Bulimba among tools and machines his life long friends. Luke was known for his sometimes caustic cynicism but also his kindness to those in need of his help. He favored BMW k-bikes, unfiltered cigarettes, Bourbon and a certain anonymity in the best tradition of a Swagman he didn't favor allot of permanent anything. Admired by many, known by only a few !
