You have such great pictures Gary! FYI - that Adamo 851 will be racing again in AHRMA's new Next Gen Superbike class next year.

OK Gary, you win! These are the coolest pictures. Nothing better than candid period pictures. You always help our restorations. I think Jimmy Adamo's tricolore is Bill Swensons. I see my old TT1 #115 in the second row with Pablo Real. Is #3 John Long's Harris? Lou

I friended John Long on Facebook recently and sent him pictures of his Harris framed bike which he said he still has, he didn't remember racing against me but he went by so quickly he wouldn't have noticed.
I just found these pictures in a box with mostly dog photo's, I don't know why I keep photo's of my old dead dogs.

#26 is jimmy, #1 is Doug Brauneck on the Dr. John Guzzi, #3 is John Long on the Harris TT, #32 is Dale Quarterley on the 851, #76 is Paul Lewis on the Commonwealth Honda, #159 is Bill Weidner on the green Frame SS, #52 is Randy Shemwell, #115 Pablo Real, #56 is Mick Ofield.
I raced the Modified class instead of the Grand Prix class that year, when they were gridding I was told I could have entered both classes for another $40.
I have a couple of pictures of the Commonwealth Honda if anybody ever restores that bike.

Good old dogs are as important as good old motorcycles. Pretty much everything else is just fluff.
