No one famous, just a local character and bike wrench. His last name was Stevens.

By the way, do you other old fahrts recall that the Greenstreak, at least the 100cc model, came with a dyno tag attached to the engine? Kawasaki said they dyno'd each engine and printed the dyno number on the tag. I watched a guy go down the line of five or six Greebstreaks at the Kaw dealer and found the one that had about 1/10 more HP than the others and bought it. Typical racer.
