My gawd!!  Did you see how low those bars are on No.2 at Monza?!

Gaston Rahier has a lot to answer for. 
(It worked for shorty Rahier - but forces an average height rider to sit down.  And begs rider to take a trip over bars ASAP)

And yes - my bars were down too in late 1970s.  Gosh, but it looks SO ABSURD now.

Ha, you amended your statement, I was wondering why you thought Tits were absurd as I'm still fascinated by them ;D

Hadn't noticed the low bars before, yes they do look low
Not sure who he was

Also, No 65 was Mark Hill and the red suit rider on his bike was his girlfriend

Kay insists it was a Mark Hill, an A grader back then.
Keep in mind there are a couple of Mark Hills around the traps including another on this forum

As the title says, can anyone name this track, its around 76/77
Has a huge jump in the middle as pr first clip, seems like the first tabletop.
I'm thinking Wonthaggi but not sure

I think Monza may have been a bit early in the year as he broke his leg in late 77.
We can both be spotted on the startline at Euroa in 77 though
