Unless Mr. Westfall died in July, he's very much alive.

The photos of the motorcycle were shot at the Rhinebeck Grand National Meet by Grail Mortillaro at the end of June.

I head Westfall was deceased, so how is anyone going to get pictures from him. plus, i see these same pictures all over the internet and every person claims they took them. What's up with that?

@Larry - I don't have any more (or better) images of the motorcycle, but I'm sure I can set something up with Mr. Westfall.
