The first Baja 1000 and Honda's little twins

I know most of you are AMA members and get the monthly magazine 'American Motorcyclist'. Check out page 12 of the August issue, pretty cool snippet on the VERY first Baja 1000 in 1967, it's leader (who was NOT Malcolm Smith!), and the machine ridden. Very surprising. Also mentions the 1968 1000 which was won aboard a Honda CL350 of all things! Since I race a 350 I had to dig up more info, found these shots on the ol' websternet, ENJOY!


anyone recognize the machine?






pretty cool eh? All those images come from this website: http://www.ravenwestguitar.com/1968baja1000.html

Now go check out the AMA letter.
