These are a few of Pat Manning's photos of the rally. I do not know much about the bikes so someone who was there, like Steve, may wish to chime in.







Apparently, only riders of Series D enclosed bike were required to wear helmets!

In the last set of 3 pics, they are Ted Leno's genuine Red Comet, Bob Guptil's Norvin, which was timed over 140 MPH at Bonneville some years ago, he is putting it back together after many years apart, and at the bottom, Tom Gross' Norvin, the ex-John Caraway one, bored and stroked with electric start. Tom rode it all the way up and back, I think he got a prize for that.

In the top photo, Bill Easter's Shadow is on the extreme right, and Robert Watson's woolly mammoth is fourth from the right.

In the second photo, in the foreground, Michael Vane-Hunt is on the right talking with Chris Kleps. In the background, Don Danmeier, Paul Zell, Dave Molloy, Richard Bove, Richard Vanderwell, Josh Bogage, myself, among the crowd.
