I'm feeling a bit left out here... Jonah actually started the race on a '87ish Husky but that bike gave up the ghost almost within sight of the Start line. I stopped (started after him) and told him if he wanted to continue to La Paz then we could share my '88 XR. I couldda easily done the entire race, but we're old friends and he came a lone way to DNF so early.
Yeah, I had a cheater bike (it was awesome too). But there were for sure some goofy rules and regulations for that event. There were race cars that would still be competitive today. I believe the 1st real vintage finisher would have been that Olds in the pic you posted @ 13th overall.

Thanks for all of the info and pictures!! Any idea why the old Honda DNF'd? I would love to pick your brain as things progress..please feel free to call BS, or offer advice as I stumble through this!

Nothing wrong with your cheater bike , I think in order to make good time, ie; actually be competitive, that would be the only way to go! Good on ya for giving Jonah the ride

I'm looking forward to them announcing the dates in April so I can plan a bit more.
