1st year racing was 1980 what you see is the champions of 1979, some fast names there..
Back when I was Young and raced my RD350 B
Had a lot of fun & meet a lot of good guys
While tring to be my best, there were 65+
rds on that grid doing the same so placing in the top 5 was no easy task. I was ranked 8th over all in my class the 3rd year I raced, 5th overall my 4th year. One picture you see me behind a kawy 550 (supper street race] I would get them in the corners and try and hold them off on the straights. Laguna Seca was a technical track not a lot of straight so I did well there
I have been working on [playing with] RD's for over 30 years. Yup I am an Old Yamaha dog, Raced a RD350B when I was young for 8 years. AFM in Northern Cali, mod-prod & supper street were my classes. I started out tuning RD race bikes, and then opened up my garage. I have rebuilt a large # of engines in the 100's. Have restored 26 bikes 6 my own, it is costly to restore.
In Northern California I got real busy with my hobby RDs Only. I tried to accommodate too many customers and it was crazy (in a 2 car garage). So now I have lots of space in Smithville TX. I can make time for every bike. I will not do as many but I feel I can do them right,
A Good Performing bike makes for Happy Customers.
Now in Texas,Give me a call or send me an email.
