Thanks for the info on Chappy. Wonder what happened to him?
Nah, she didn't take the Buls but the financial squeeze forced their departure. Life goes on. I still have a restored Sherpa 100cc motor in my living room; the frame is out back waiting for time, money, and patience.

I don't know what ever happened to Bob and Chappy. I got out of dirt car racing stuff in '87 and lost track of a bunch of good people after that.

But speaking of desert racers, back around 1970 I had a husky 360 which was called a Desert Racer. It had a lever on top the case to change the gear ratios. Since I rode enduros in the southeast, I never needed to change to the higher ratio. I've tried to look it up on husky and vintage sites, was that just a huskyWR? did all the WR's have that transfer lever? Man that was a fun bike.
