Skip Schildhauer..............Ya that is his name. Super nice kid and family. He rode out of Cycle 5 on Maicos but I do not remember him on a Kawasaki. In 79 he might have even still been on an 80.
Its a shame Mike Farmer never made it Pro.......I think he would have had something for them.
Its funny there were so many fast MD riders that came out of MAMA and then the district.........back then only Bradshaw made a splash as a pro till Mike Moore.
Just found this so I am old news at this point, but I was with the Schildhauer's and Taylor's in CA in 1979 for the Amateur Nationals when Skip got hurt. Yes he did hit a tree and spent a few days in the hospital but recovered and was able to race the next year. Glen Taylor, Mike Farmer, Steve Graham also raced that year. Maybe some other District 7 riders that I don't remember. It was the old Hangtown track. Glen Taylor got 3rd in the Open class, Eric McKenna from CA got 1st and Alan King from MI got 2nd, all three on Maico's. King went on the be a factory Suzuki rider. Mike Farmer got 5th in the 125 class.
This is a photo of the Schildhauer rig in Utah on the way to CA. Skip's parents and Glen's parents and I took the RV and both the guys flew out to the race
