Ok, do any of your SoCal guys remember this outfit?
Is any part of the business still on going?

Sweet XL's, one of my all time favs. Keep the oil clean & watch those cam bearing surfaces.

I don't remember them. I did a quick google search for GEMCo in Santa Fe Springs and came up with this:

Thanks
It's always cool to me how cottage industries pop up to make specialty items like this, then vanish just as quickly.

I have 3 pairs of these, and the first set only lasted a couple of hours ebay. I must have been too cheap.............

My brother-in-law had a 250 Motosport, my sister (his wife) had an orange SL100.
That 100 was my first bike when I assumed it from my sis.
There's some pics somewhere in the family of those bikes.

Flug, if you ever see Jack again, ask him about the time he raced my brother-in-law's 250 at the local stock car track.

I have two sets left, and one is on ebay right now. Send me a PM and I'll make you a better deal than what I have them listed for.

I rebuilt a set of forks for an old buddy of mine this week with new seals and internal cleansing. He showed up with a 36 pack of adult beverages and this in a shadow box frame.



This is the last shirt made out of 144 originals. Deadmans is still where it was but nothing has been done with it. I believe that Rocket Rex Staten still owns the property. It is near Apple Valley CA.

I can't remember this fast mofo's name!

I only saw him race once. He ran away with both open moto's at the St. Peters Trans AM qualifier in I think it was '74? He was from Texas if I remember right. He was on fire that day! Then he didn't make it to the actual Trans AM later that same year. That same year DeCoster won both 500 moto's and Jimmy Ellis won the 250 overall at the Trans AM itself. DeCoster was butter smooth. I read in an interview that St. Peters was then his favorite American MX track. It was one bad ass track!

Nice 250!! I start off-road on a 1972 XL 250. No power, but sure was fun.
