Tommy Mac's getting the 441 Metisse dialed in finally, but he did not have to race a 360 Twinpipe at CRR

Bill Stuth's got a trick tank like Joel Robert's from the 67-68 time period, too bad the bike is not a CZ

Nybold's new Monkey Bike,
(he's really proud of this!)

Jeff Mullin's 360 Oval Barrel Maico, nice addition to the Classic 500 class!

Jud Milller's Montesa VR, (I think these Montasa VR's were one of the best looking motocross bikes of 74)

Team "Pushrod" at Crooked River Ranch, (4) Greeves and not one Pushrod in the trailer!

Pat Riley's new BSA A-10, (some body chip in and get Pat some proper side numbers)

Randy Hall gots nice side numbers on his Trivarna, (take note Pat)

Jay Aitcheson made a lot of good modifications to his Yamaha MX 100 over the winter, tricked the hell out of it But then he just left his 40 year old, hard, rounded off knobby's on the bike.  Come On Man!!!

Dean Newton would like to convey,

I would like to thank all those who helped load my bikes and gear in the truck so my wife could follow the ambulance to Alturas. I wasn't around, but I really appreciate it. I eventually wound up in a hospital in Medford where my broken leg was repaired.

Really nice 73 250 Maico at the Swap Meet, only $2,700 OBO.  Hell of a deal!

Nipping the bud of the kids racing their mini bikes through the pits, (especially the loud and obnoxious KTM kid with no glass in the silencer), was our hero Buck Murphy

There seemed to be a lot of nice Maico's down at Hollister this year, like Bob Bellicitti's
