    At 18:46 Mitch got the name wrong on the first rider he named in that group picture. It's not Adolf Weil it's Suzuki's Dutch Gerrit Wolsink.:) The only 5 Time USGP Carlsbad Winner the Dentist. 2016 Supercross interview with Jim Holly thexvid.com/video/KA9G9pU4klQ/video.html

    It's a literal GOLD MINE in what's essentially the attic equivalent of the PC HQ...Good God. Anyone who ever wanted to pull the perfect heist, this is the motherload right here. I don't even think Mitch can truly appreciate this stuff the way other people can/do. He's jaded, and to think much of this stuff hasn't seen the light of day since it was packed up in boxes...SMH

    wegee and his typical BS clowny mouth.. "1990 the most exciting SX season ever"... It was exciting yes (I was a big fan of Stanton #1, Bradshaw #8 & Larry Ward #17, O'Mara, Cooper #4, Tichenor, etc) but with RJ not at his best anymore something was missing here (so a lot of racers emerged) ... 1985 was The Year, 8 top factory (and legendary) racers on true factory bikes (at least Honda & Kawi) get at least one overall win (two main events by round except Daytona) and there were 2 or 3 points between the top 3 before the last round (Wardy, Glover, Lechien) and at the end of the series there were maybe only 20 points between Wardy (the champ) and the 5th , and I still remember the two #1 of Johnny O' & Bailey on their RC250 factory Honda, Bailey with a blue plate & yellow #1..

My buddy got the LaRocco seat and some other things. We are both lucky SOBs. Lol.

      This reminds me of some stuff at Works Connection. The manager took me upstairs to look through some boxes of goodies. I was pretty much sweating with excitement when it was all over. Lol. I couldn't believe my eyes. There was a 1992 LaRocco factory KX seat, On The Line Racing graphics and seat cover, Original Peak "91 and "92 graphics kits, #1 plates and riders' jerseys among other amazing things. The most impressive was the AMA Tech sheets from the 1986 Daytona Supercross. There was every one of the riders who raced that day and signed off their bikes. There was David Bailey, Ricky Johnson, Ricky Ryan, Jeff Ward to name a few. It was amazing.

  • LA FLAMA BLANCA

    For everyone commenting that Polisport makes a kit for it... It has to do with only wanting to use sponsored companies’ products. These builds are just aiming at selling junk to people. Wrench Rabbit, TUSK, Decal Works, etc on every single one of Jay’s builds. It’s literally copy paste every time.

      Suzuki 2 stroke gearboxes were made from chocolate and tin, when a company does not rectify their mistakes they lose respect and customers! They wanted to charge silly money for heat treated gears for 2 meeting old bikes instead of doing a call back! Sad really as they were there or there about's in the 80's, now they are the gay bike, yep constantly up the back end....... PS, They are rare because they all broke and got scrapped
