Robert Walter “Walt” French
1941 – 2003
The pictures on this web page were taken from an 8mm movie film that was taken at the A.M.A. flat track motorcycle races run on the half-mile race at the Cowley County Fairgrounds in Winfield, Kansas on May 21, 1972 so that is why they are so “fuzzy”. A.M.A. Junior Class rider Walt French of Bartlesville, Oklahoma can be seen riding his #4m BSA in each of them. All of the pictures on this web page are from the Robert French collection.
