    I had heard of the first Harley-Davidson dealer, Gene Walters in Orlando, from Buddy Puckett, who's Dad acquired an H-D franchise in Orlando in 1936. The distance from Walters location to Puckett's location couldn't have been much more than 2 miles. I don't know how much time overlap there was on those dealerships but I didn't think H-D allowed such close proximity. Obviously they co-existed. I know that the Walters' inventory went to a guy by the last name of Forrest, and I saw some of it at his shop in Titusville (a real dump). I had heard that there was a fair amount of 2 cam stuff in that pile, and lot's of J, and JD parts. However, those dealers didn't keep frames, sheet metal, and the stuff people kill for today. They kept the small stuff that would keep motors, and transmissions running. The only other thing I remember from Buddy Puckett regarding the Walters is; his widow rode a pink Panhead which Puckett's did the service on. Even as an older woman, she could still kick start it.
