Yeah, I love that shot - pity the quality was so low..   ::)

I don't think the shaft's bent though, it looks more like the shaft has come out of the shock body (started disassembling itself internally?)

Also, the rear frame loop looks all wrong - top of the frame loop is almost at top of seat level??

I remember taking that shot - he was still enjoying himself even with the DNF!   ;D

Spoke to Beek today ,he is still racing this very bike in the pics and the frame is a TS400 with a TM400 motor and he has since cut the TS rear guard bracket of and replaced it with a TM rear including TM guard.
He still uses the shocks that were on the bike at the time the photo was taken that were bent like a Banana and apparently they were new Koni shocks back in the day and fell apart on the first ride that weekend but amazingly they are still serving him well today.

I know this topic is a bit old but found some more shots from this title event that some of you may find interesting.

Rod Sizeland jumping his elsinore 125 way further than it was made to do

Not sure who this was but it was an amazing looking bike

No chairs at the 92 Nats. Raced there on the day and Russ bergmeir spannered for me and we wondered if the sport would eventually encompass the chairs. Mark, have great VHS tape of you and the pink Fluor beast. I spent most of the weekend trying to lap in the needle seat of a carb using tweezers and toothpaste to stop a flooding issue.

Sidecars started at Ravo on the second one, still have program with my boys listed on "Home Built Special CB754" hence the reason I call it a HBS/Wasp. Firko wrote a paragraph in the Australasian Dirt Bike Magazine follow up ,giving the lads great praise for having a ball even though they careered, crashed and created mayhem at the rear of the pack  Cheers.Tim754 
I may not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.
