Maybe he was on a 250 or a 350 , they had so many more classes operating back then .
Walter won his later championships in 1976, at age 33. It was both the 250 and 350 classes. For Harley/Aramacchi.

Another older winner was the infamous Angel Nieto. He was 37 when he won his last championship in 1984. In the 125 class.

Neither were top class champions. Which is what we're really talking about here.

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity
