Yes, Harley did produce dirt bikes. Back as far as 1957. The first Sportster XLCHs were dirt bikes complete with knobby tires and upswept pipes.

Wow, great pics. Now THAT'S vintage racing!
I'm sure some great sounds associated with that too! I would love to see some UK pre-65 stuff sometime when I get back over.

JEEBUS!
Ya gotta love Malcolm. 70 years young and still acting like a teenager.
I got to meet him and Alexander at his shop in Riverside about ten
years ago. Perfect gentleman with a kids ornery twinkle.

Yeah, wish I could be there to see it. I'll see if a buddy can snap some shots for me. If so, I'll post them up here after the weekend.

Wow, 102 pages and counting! I've only read the first 9 pages so far, so apologies if I'm repeating things that have already been said.

In this area (northern Michigan) the first dirt races I saw in the early 60's were called scrambles. The bikes were pretty much all British twins and singles with a few modified Harley's tossed in. The tracks were fairly wide with rolling hills and sweeping turns. I always figured the Honda "scrambler" models took their name from these types of races.

In the mid-60's a local dealer started selling Bultaco's and everything changed overnight. Those little 2-strokes could keep up with the heavy iron on the straights and smoked them in the curves. Other European models started showing up and the big 4-strokes were gone from the scene in a few years.

The hills got steeper, the curves got tighter, and the name changed to motocross right about then, at least here locally. I was so impressed by those little Bultaco's that my first dirt bike was a 1965 Bultaco 175 Campera. These and similar models from Ossa and Montesa predated the Yamaha DT-1 by a couple of years, and I always figured the Yamaha enduro line was pretty much just a copy of them.. Mine had great suspension and handling for the day and looked just like this one:

Well, all I got was a forward of a short video clip from a cellphone. Not even Youtube-able or quality. Hopefully someone else was there and got some pics. Sorry!!

This has just poped up for sale at one of my local bike shops.









Apparently its a 72 Bultaco Matador fitted with a Persang tank and Preston Petty guards and they're asking AU$1000...

Tempted...
