No, it's a Gold Star 500 . . . a DBD34. The winningest motorcycle of all time. From the mid-30's to 1961 (the 1971 B50 "Gold Stars" don't count as real Goldies), the Gold star was road raced, dirt tracked, scrambled, trials . . . you name it, someone was racing either a 350 or a 500 Gold Star. Great bikes.

Cheers,

Dave

New York's finest

Nick Richichi won the "Laconia Classic" in 81. This 82 shot shows the pinstripper still applying a sponsers logo.

At least in AAMRR back then.

Thanks for the correction. When I wrote that I was wondering if the yellow plate thing was universal.

Besides racing with him back then, I got to go street riding with him a couple of times. We never went over the speed limit even once.

Old TZs are cool, but Superbikes have always been four strokes!

Agree, there seems to be some confusion between Grand Prix bikes and Superbikes.

Would appear so.....hey, we still race them here, do you guys?





That'd be Steve Martin, ex WSBK front runner, now commentator, and World Endurance champ. Lapping Phillip Island on a Katana, quick enough to qualify for last years moderns....



Bargain!

Bootlace, thanks for the pics, especially the Katanas! I was visiting Melbourne in '97 when I drove to Broadford to see road racing. I saw Steve Martin lapping the field in local Superbikes and met Martin Hone, brother of Mick, who was racing Open singles, which I was running at the time. Awesome track for only bikes, I was in love! And I've been friends with Martin ever since.

It's funny you should say that! I was over at Broadford a few days ago, doing laps.....
