Great topic and I see this over and over again. My own story mirrors so many others. I stopped racing when I was 19 years old (1977) primarily due to financial reason. Working at a shop making $4.00 per hour didn't allow you to do much racing if you ... more »

WOW! I just drove by this last Sunday and thought what a shame! When Suzuki was there (for those not from So Cal) it was all glass and at one time had Suzuki Motorcycles in every panel. I remember going there a few times and I always had that feeling ... more »
Added reply in a thread your favorite supercross season and why? 10/20/2010 3:20 PM
My favorite is 1998 when MC was considered over the hill after his year on the Suzuki, He came out swinging on the Yamaha at A1 and totally kicked ass that year a few more years to come! Agree MC is the KING!

Hmmmmmm I remember Al Fox (Maico and Sachs) and Tracy's (Husky) but can't remember a CZ shop in Burbank. The closest CZ shop to Burbank was Otto's CZ in Hollywood. Maybe there was one there for a very short period in time.

I raced a lot of the AME races in 1976 and 77'. The shop I rode out of (Pesky's Suzuki) took the AME shop trophy away from Cole Brothers in 77'.

Thanks Gary! I used to talk with Jerry at the track and sometimes he would come into the shop I was working at (Pesky's Suzuki) and he was always friendly. I quit racing in 1977 and didn't realize he had made it to the pro ranks. I think he was a fast ... more »

Any idea where "Little Jerry" is now? I heard he had moved to New York but that was many years ago. Welcome to the board! David

in 1986 Honda went to the cartridge style fork. This fork is night and day batter than the 85' fork. The 86' and 87' have/had the best suspension but in 1989 Honda screwed the pouch and started their ten years reign of the worst suspension ever! I would ... more »

I hear MXA is doing or has done a story about his career. Might not have come out yet.

On E-Bay one in this condition just sold for $899.00. I have also seen them sell for $1,200 so I would guess this is where yours would be at... $900.00 to $1,200.00. Those prices are with a title by the way. No clue on the oil...

You're not kidding! I worked for Bud when I was a teenager and got to ride one of his triumphs as they were in the early 60's (Bud had a huge collection of bikes). This was in 1976 (approx) and I had an RM370 at the time and honestly I have no idea how ... more »
