WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

This is a shot from a California Championship Enduro up in Northern California. I was riding a 1983 Husqvarna 500XC, fit with a 420 Auto Motor that I had been racing with for a year and half. Gaylon Mosier’s Maico mechanic was Rick Jones and a good friend. He took the softly powered machine and transformed it into a missile. It was a full cheater in the woods, and though they ran notoriously hot, were hard on clutches and expensive to maintain- ridden hard it was incredibly competitive.
