Amazing bike- was it the actual bike he won the title on? Was close that year- Andre, Noyce and Carla on the Yam. Only a few points between them.

Stunning bike- like all your bikes! I really love the clean hubs- well all of it really. Interesting also Darryn Dunham riding it- what a bike and lovely work.

I do remember the 83 125 MX version, dated by the Japanese bikes and was meant to be abit lacking in both performance and tech spec. Not many of them sold over here, I seem to recall. Still a cool bike though and probably very rare and collectable nowdays ... more »

Hahah- I reckon you maybe cracked it !! Thought there maybe more to it than what have seemed more obvious. I did wonder about the face guard, does look remarkably similar to Rocket Rex's and also saw a pic of Rocket Rex on number 39, exactly as you saying!

From the clues (too many!

He did good really- qualifying really super. Also to finish in front of Anstie in the 2nd race was good. Give the guy some credit! Must be hard travelling internationally and setting up for a situation like this. Credit to the man! Hope he is in for

Your Sis sounds just like mine! She made things very hard for the whole family and also stole my Fathers inheritance that was meant for her kid- like £90,000! When you have family members like this, yes things not easy- such a pity, my empathy for sure. ... more »

Totally agree- he can do top 5's (outdoors) and it wouldn't surprise me at all if actually better even. Slightly off topic but also worth a mention, I remember his old man racing (his Dad)- Merv (the Swerve) as he was affectionately known (not always ... more »

Yes- was true- Jason did a parade lap on that bike at the Farleigh 500 GP- think was 1979- think it may have actually been water cooled and tricked out, before water cooling started to happen stock. Cannot quite remember but it certainly was trick. Also ... more »

Not got a picture of the car/bike- but do recall when Bonzo and Jason arrived at National championship final in I think 1978-80- cannot quite remember the year. Yes bike was in the back/ trunk of a brown Rolls Royce- wheels pokin out of the trunk! Was ... more »

Great memories of Bob on the all white Chesterfield 250cc Yams- him, Schmit and Puzar - all team mates. Those bikes and riders all flew fast back in the 90's era. Super times. That was such a competitive time- were loads of riders fast enough to win- ... more »

Yes- you are correct- I thought Puzar won on the TM but he came 2nd and 3rd on it -I think was 97 and 98. As you say Harry Everts was also pretty good- surprised he hasn't been mentioned more, won title 3 times on 125. Strange how good the Belgians were ... more »
