I believe that RMac got it right with the Honda Trail bike. IMHO
Many of the others were excellent contenders and brought back many wonderful memories. Thank you all!

I like this one, but I think it may actually be a photo of a Tamiya scale model kit. Seriously.

As far as she knew, Jim had the same 10 year old bike he always had.

The wife never knew Jim put the old gas tank on the new bike. He'd swap the gas tank and take it out to get muddy and ride home. She never caught on. Eventually the tank was 6 or 8 years old but he mounted it on the current year bike.

I still remember my Dad and Jim laughing about this slight of hand.

This went on for years and years.

Ps: Brad Lackey is writing a article about JP's work for the VMX magazine and will be out in a few months for now.
Anybody has a photo of the Suzuki DeCoster rode with that funky linkage front end?

I remember watching him on that bike on Cosell's ABC Wide World of Sports on Sundays with Pop on a color TV.
