I bought a DG chest protector at a garage sale yesterday, I remember them but can't find a picture of one. The only one I can find is a Honda one with the big H. I just want to make sure this is just the standard retail one and not something special made for team riders before I decide to keep or sell. Anyone remember or have old catalogs. Photo

So just for future reference Tim Buck answered my question. There were models for all four brands with the brand logo on the front as well as a DG model with this chest plate. This one should have had the Yamaha chest plate but they were probably out of those so it got a DG one.

My dad had the Yoko made Fox protector that looks nearly identical. Not sure if the one DG sold was also made by Yoko or a copy..

The DG ones were made in So Cal by a husband and wife named Dick and Jane Bukowski(per Tim Buck).
