Unless my memory is totally shot, it's a Goodyear DT. Photo taken at Juliaca in Peru. We had ridden up from Arequipa, dirt roads all the way, approx 300 Km, took 13 hours, snow at the top at around 16,000 ft. The reason why the bike had no front mudguard was that it had clogged up on a muddy stretch of road and locked up the front wheel. 2 up with camping gear. I later sold the bike in Bolivia for over $5000, about twice what I had paid for the bike.
