    There will be small memorial service held for Steve Hurd (and Jim Cooke) out at the Husky Memorial on Saturday, June 22 at 11am.

    Also, that sidehack rig looks very familiar! I think Woody Caruth had inherited it from my father and Roger Myrick.

    They bought the Matchless from Bill Brokaw, and built the hack themselves. I believe they won the '59 and '60 National Hare and Hound Championships with it. Roger was the driver, and my father was the monkey.

    Great shot as usual. I had been hoping you were at MX rewind this year and that you would be posting picture from this event. I was there too, had a great time! took some pictures but nothing that stacks up against your stuff!

    I thought Cooper was hero of weekend!

    I know that Honda's weren't totally out of it pre 1973 as Rod Peck has posted some SWEET pics of him on his 350 circa early 70's. But I think that was more out west as modifying a 350 for dirt use would have been much more practical than in the east given the terrain.
