Cliff Majhor, AKA Sandy Bandit, infamous proprietor of Cycle Hub in Portland Oregon passed away last week. There will be a memorial for him on Sat. Sept 13th.

Depending on who you talk to he was either 85 or 88 or in between. Many urban legend type stories about this guy, some true, some who knows. Most likely he spread them himself. Truely a charactor wheather you liked him or not. Had a huge influence on the MC world in the NorthWest and beyond.

I knew Clif only through the phone. He was great to talk to and was the go to guy for any unobtanum part, and I mean any part. This was in the 1980s and if it was not for him I could not have put together some great restorations. TT specials, a Rocket Goldstar Spitfire Scrambler, Goldie's. P11s. (Sadly all those bikes are gone save one Goldie and a P11) He sent me parts books to copy and return, pictures of him jumping through fire. A great guy. I once was in Portland and stopped by his shop only to find it closed. He was a valuable resource and asset to the restorer. His Daughter also worked there and knew as much as he did.

I had dealt with Cliff since the early 70's and in later life made a point of stopping during business trips up until he closed...I am still not sure why we got along and he gave me the behind the counter tours. I can tell you from experience most of the stories are true....ask anyone who ever tried to get a discount!
He would trash a part rather than drop the price. On the other hand, once you paid your dues, he did all he could to come up with what needed. He had parts that other could only imagine. It was always a show!

I just noticed this today-thanks for the notification. I saw Cliff earlier this year-used to stop in his shop on Sandy Blvd. just to talk, listen to his stories and just look around. Indeed a legend.
