Those are pretty neat. Think I have you beat on age of motorcycle though. Part of my family photo album; a few other shots are there as well. All I know about them is that my great grandfather was a Harley dealer.

wow those pics bring back some memories, Maico's, Bultaco's and was that one a CZ? oh my! ..I was just nine or ten back in 71' when I saw Roger Decoster ride a Suzuki to victory. It was like a MX God lighted upon our shores. Great post!

Not my era so most of the names I know only fleetingly or via "On Any Sunday", but neat pics all the same. I have the utmost respect for the guys able to go quick on the bikes of that time.
