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

Should add Glover to that also, how he kept up w/ DB while riding that POS is beyond me.

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.

Glover ranks near the top for winning races/titles on the outdated air hammer.

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.
