BLAST FROM THE PAST

Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 2.08.06 PM
In 1970 Husqvarna’s 400 Cross was the epitome of motocross technology. It was stark, clean and everything focused on controlling the brutality of the sport. The tank, the gap to the saddle, the fork and the stark effectiveness of the aluminum front fender with the mud flap set the tone for the machines brilliance. It didn’t hurt that Bengt Aberg won both the ’69 and ’70 500cc World Championships.

Bengt Aberg was one of the brilliant Swedes who pushed the sport of motocross in the late 60s.

Mark Kiel captured the Jon “The General” Miller testing a Maico 400 in 1975. Jon was a former factory mechanic, a superb motocrosser and then off-roader in the early 80s. He really found his balance when mountain bikes and road bikes took over his passion.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

IMG_2298
Mister Clipper was the best photographer at Dirt Bike and he shot this of me trail testing a 1982 Can-Am 175 Qualifier. I really wasn’t a big fan of any bike under a 250 and this machine (inspite of the fact that I’d raced  Can-Am’s for several years) was stuck in the time warp of trying to figure out where they were going with suspension and deal with the fact that motor needed some help.

 

This was a Dirt Bike Subscription ad that ran in 1982. That’s Paul Clipper and the infamous Super Hunky who played a huge role in the growth of yours truly.
