    I had very few pics unfortunately Jak. Regret it a bit now.
    Don't think there were any of the dirt track days.

    Here is what winners were wearing back in the day in the Karting scene. Had just won the Eastern Lions Club championships, driving an old kart with a West Bend chainsaw motor in it.
    Think I was 9 or 10. Trophy was presented by Bob Jane in his hey day.
    The only extra gear worn was an open face helmet and goggles. Notice the stylish open collar denim jacket.

    Loved my Boeri Splatter helmet, wore it till it was so sacked out inside that it fitted like it was two sizes too big! The first full face off-road helmet that came with a visor, at least that I know of.

    And my Wulfsport "Moonstrike" jacket. Still use this puppy, a ripper jacket that hasn't suffered from being thrown against stringy barks and sand and rocks and mud (all with me inside it and a motorcycle somewhere nearby....).

    I had one of these in about '82. This ad is from an issue of Revs magazine in '81.

    You could have the peak or a visor, the first dualsport helmet?

    No pics but my riding gear back in the Illawarra mini bike club days was lace up army boots, jeans, footy jersey, open helmet with jaffa mouth guard. We used to ride to Kingsgrove brick pits through the storm water drains with council kerosene lamps for headlamps. My wheels where the GT80 and spent many days chasing Steve Gall on his methanol burning SL70 and his XR75 around the brick pits.

    yep it was, sorta, it was also a hand me down helmet that was way too big and would have fallen off if it wasn't

    It had a two strap system, the first strap that is done up, was a 4 press stud set up and then had the second strap normal d ring set up that was not done up, it was a minibike club slalom cones event, I remember that day clearly and was great fun
