Some people have an art for seeing that kind of thing  ;D ;D
Looking for YZ250C parts NOS if possible

The only triple jumps he would have been doing are the hop, skip & jump.

OK some action shots from the April 1977 MR MX meet

 
 
Unless you have a 1976 Mr MX program two of these rider you may not know. #10 is doing what he does best and #50 has just had a video of himself placed on OZVMX. All these pics have NEVER seen the light of day since I took them...to many years ago
What more can I say except ...ENJOY
Don't ask me how to ride a bike or change a gear. I have sat on a couple but never ridden one. My adrenalin rush came from taking photos of the guys/gals racing them up close and personal.

I'm an old Annandale Leichardt member and well remember Steve Pearce as a very fast C grader. In fact I bought his very quick Gary Tredwell ported methanol burning '74 250 Maico which would probably be one bike prior to the MX400-B he's riding in the photo. He was one of the first of the Annandale Leichardt 'Maico Mob' to defect to the Japanese products.

Is that a zombie I see walking just to the right of 191???

Don't worry about the walking dead.... Anyone notice how much taller the back of the CR is? I'm sure there would be a lot more '76 Elsinores out racing if they could have that much suspension travel now.
Arrogance.....A way of life for the those that having nothing further to learn.

all lot of riders back in the 70's say the same thing we were to busy riding and it was only random that you ever had and photos taken unless they were on a little instamatic plastic camera some of them very long distance and can just make out the bike and rider , by your then girl friend cause she was bored outa her mind watching you go round and round and round i know ive got half a dozen in 12 year of racing that you can make out who it is these photos are a credit to you mate

you bring a lot of joy to a lot of riders mate places with some of these special events and track we couldnt make it to  and other places like :  (old bar( come in dripping with oil )  , greenhills ( pit corner shit no brakes) , failford ( first time we ever saw table tops) , batar creek (one of the best nateral terain track this side of the black stump) , nemingah ( down hill wheelies being to by officials to stop chucking them yeah right ) , pine park( stuff up one turn and you will come in last) carroo park (my favourite come in dripping of grape juice, not to mention mount fuji ), grafton and dungog natural terrain, nepean ( laying down on the tank of a rm370 heaven)
 :'( that we are not still there
 ;D we can relive through vmx

I cant photograph to save my life, but
when I was a wipper-snapper my bro-in-law used to take me to the meets(Oran Park International spectacular etc, etc, etc).
He was a keen 35mm shooter.

I asked his wife last night, she said "yes he would still have the negatives some where! Would you like me to ask if you could have them them?".
So fingers Crossed.

We nearly had super eight movies of the late sixties, early seventies, including nationals.
My best bud Charlie(Mark) had set up a projector etc with a modern digital to recapture them from the wall.
We were just about ready for the popcorn, when six months after Maggoo passed, Charlie suddenly died from a blood clot. Pissed off, I was, top bloke. His family through out the projector, Bell moto helmets etc in the clean out.

His mate still has the films, but in his company I struggle to resist the urge to kill him. I don't see how I could sit through hundreds of hours with him, without getting 20yrs behind bars.  In the mean time the films that he wont let out of his sight continue to rot I guess.

JohnnyO got the Stephen Gall, Geoff Worrell and Brian Martin right in that three shot on the first page, but what about the guy standing next to Brian.

Where is Ross King these days? I used to see him quite a bit but haven't seen him around the traps for a few years now.
