A great thread guys, awesome!!
I love seeing the names like Harry Mallet and Pierre Des Roaches as growing up in So-Cal during the superbike daze these guys were producing bikes that were thick and trick.
A few years ago Harry Klinzman put together a Big Bore R/90 for me in his garage. Sad to see him living with his mom and going through tough times. He was loads of fun and I remember a Cycle News cover shot of him and a feature story including him living off peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on the road running Superbikes. After we built the bike we had a wheelie competition on it to break it in. He kicked my ass
