    WWII? NOT with those shoes, I'd guess that's a modern photo right there. Oh and I'd also guess those shoes probably are not military or Navy issue either. Brown leather belt? Jeans? Nope.[​IMG]

    It has been almost a year since Wes last posted on ADV.
    I sent him a PM a couple months ago about the pictures but he didn't reply.
    He probably moved his pictures and didn't remap them for us.

    Very sad because they are great pictures of real life riding back then.

    Maybe if we ALL send him messages it will encourage him to get the pictures back in this thread.

    Had to find these pictures for another forum. They are rough and I'm not sure if they are pre-touched originals, but here they are, until we can find the originals again... These are not my own. 9-Arapahoe_Pass_1953_original.jpg 9-Foot_power_1952_original.jpg 9-More_Mud_1952_original.jpg 9-Mount_Evans_road.jpg 9-Mudding_original.jpg

    I know this is an old thread, but if anyone has a copy of the original past with all the pics, I would appreciate a copy or a link to where it can be found.
    We can't lose this type of memorabilia.
    Thanks
