#1 "Bad" Brad Lackey on the left. "Jammin" Jimmy Weinert on the right.
#2 Roger "the Man" Decoster on the left and for the rest of 'em, well I must do some research before I insert foot. I have ideas though!

The more I look at the last pic it looks like Roger D's style pitchin it side ways in the turn, but I'm not for sure. These pics got to be circa 1974-78. Dang I was anywhere from 6 months old to 4 yrs. old, but I do remember some of these in '79 running at Hangtown.

Those were the good old days. Notice how they all had real nicknames. Nowadays all they can come up with is "MC" , "RC", "Bubba". Duhhhhh! How boring...

No not Husky Montessa only clue for now

A Montesticle? I thought I recognized that front hub! Could it be Roger D's cousin(?) Pekka Vehkonen for which the 74 Montesa VR250 was named? Or a U.S. rider? Marty Tripes used to race a Rickman Montesa but the guy in the photo looks a little more slender than Tripes. More clues on this one and Mr. Right photo #2 are required for further processing!!!!!!!

Hey Ego, #3 is John DeSoto.
I raced with him back in the late 70's
P.S. also when you post the pic's, change the name of them before you post. You gave them ALL away :) :D :D :D
