MORE Old photos

Postby moose » Sun Jan 07, 2018 7:11 pm

I have found a few old photos. I tried to scan them but my crappy equipment quit after the first scan! I guess it is time to get off my wallet and pick up a new scanner. Here is the first and only pic I was able to liberate. Several more to follow...

I have added a few more photos today. I picked up a new scanner and it seems to be doing an OK job of it. I still have quite a few pictures left to upload.

If you can identify any of the people or equipment be sure to do so.

Thanks for the post.
Great to see an old shot of my Ducati #22 & Gus Johnson #18 we had some good races back then.
Any chance of getting a copy of the picture?

Joe did you not have some good ding-dong races with Andy Beresford about then? Gary would know, Jim Wood kept the Duc singles pace going, too. Do these riders coincide with the dates you mention?

Great memories!

Hey Joe,

Yes sir we did and we are amazingly lucky to have been going as fast as possible around in circles of sorts all those years back then. We are even luckier to be arguably more or less able to still do so! I still have my nc 350 and even a 750 sport but the RS125 is my all-time fav. Possible you might make Calabogie?

Cheers!
