Yep his debut in the 500cc class in 1998 on a 500cc Honda (special build for him).

Wow! Everts riding a factory aluminum-frame Honda 2-stroke 500 at Namur!! How EPIC is that??? Thanks for those vids!

Lechien would win the mullet contest......although Bradshaw ran some wicked "hockey hair" too!

Although not a Champion, Australian Jeff Leisk performed very well during his short 2 years in 500's,
Runner up in his second year, racing against all the great GP champions in 1989.

Yeah, it was amazing he could even keep Bailey in sight with that tank!! I raced a YZ490 in '86 against the L/C Honda's and Kawi's.....it wasn't fun.

It's hard to make lists like this...someone is always being left off, but it's fun to do.
