at the time. Great story about how Don Jones developed it all, even the story about the tank strap is cool. Cool bikes.
I ended up with just the back wheel and tire off a silver tank 360 a couple months ago,it had been hidden away in a dark garage since it was new.
Just the stock nearly unused tire brought 139.00,hub and backing plate went to a guy with a works bike museum,about 360.00 for the bits.
All the wheel parts were subtly different then the MX'ers.
The frame is hidden somewhere in this area,Id like to find it.
