Airhead Rally Privateers- Photothread

Any photos out there on Airhead privateer rally bikes?

We have seen plenty of BMW factory bikes from the '79-85 Paris Dakar vintage, but little on the privateer guys that kept riding airheads in rallies long after the factory moved on.

A few examples I have found:

From recent Heroes Rally:

As raced in the rally of Albania last year:

I think it might be Frits burning out his clutch. The son of a Dutch (ex) BMW Dealer.
