A bit old, out of focus and grainy looking, I took photos with the digital camera from old photos......

These photos were found in my parents house the past weekend in an old album. I had forgotten about these and enjoyed looking at them again.

These were shot out at Canyon Raceway north of Phoenix around 1980-81...
I remember Johnny had recently signed with Honda and brought the Mugen and a production 1981 CR250 out with him in his old yellow Nissan truck.

Yes, thanks!
I like the old Yamaha sticker, in the van window.

I don't trust any "Joined Date" later than 2012

Buy the look of that set up he probably even had a wrench in his hands. I don't think you would see that now with the current crop of top riders. Where is the semi? with all the bells and whistles.

I remember hearing how Johnny had that little red tool box with him for a long time. I remember seeing it still when he was making money and on his way to a Supercross Championship.

I remember him in this mini pickup, then boom... he's got the Mugan, Al Baker, a Japanese Mechanic and a USGP 125 win.

I wonder if a kid today can make it on a shoestring budget (until getting noticed) as many guys did back in the day.
