Even though it doesn't look like him to me, could it be Malcolm?

For my education, what did he ride to score the lid?

Skunk hats were/are generally reserved for a 'des Nations participant. Just curious.

I would say 82' Husky
Black tank
polished spot w/gold ring = 82' Husky! :D

My dad had a 1973 Husky wr250 and that is STILL the scariest meanest bike I have ever ridden ........with maybe the exception of a YZ490!
I remember my dad said if I could start it that I could ride it.
I put my left leg up on the starter and gave it a whack!
<font color=red>Needless to say ......IT gave ME a WHACK back!!!up against the bars OUUUUCHH! :)
What a BEAST! :D

Sorry I was late today, actually had to get some work done! I took a photo of Dick at the Steamboat Springs, Co. AHRMA Vintage Nationals back in '93 wearing the #5 plate and that same helmet! When was the photo taken? I hope he at least rinses it out every few years!
