Here is a link to a Cycle News article about Marty's LOP bike. It actually displaced 493cc!
http://www.cyclenews.com/articles/fr...27-07-09-2010/

I'm a 465 owner too, mines an H model 1981. Bought it new, back in the day, influenced by Marty's win
and all of the magazine raves no doubt!

In 1983 I was stationed at Great Lakes IL (Navy) I met a few of the LOP gang, including Craig Anderson
one of the guys that built Marty's bike. Never met Laurens Offner, but the guys at the Suzuki shop I hung
out at, shared many tales of the exploits at LOP!

Here's my bike in '82 at Carlsbad.


I am not sure that is Carlsbad, I had worked there fopr a couple of years, and can remember the place pretty well, and I see nothing remind me of the place, I worked there off and on from 1977-1980 Sat night write T=times for the drag strip and sundays flagman for motocross got to see and meet some cool guys, Oh yeah got to work the USGP
