I had never seen it before. It is a reproduction of one of Dan Mahony's great shots.
I worked at YIC when the "Monster" was brought by. I heard Kenny utter those words, "They don't pay me enough to ride this thing".
It wasn't to long before Scott Brelsford was riding a Irv Kanemoto tuned Champion framed H1R Kawasaki at he San jose Mile. Rick Hocking was aboard a Honda 750 four. It seemed everyone was bringing out whatever multi-cylinder go fast thing they could build to cope with the more powerful XR750s at the time.
The Peter Starr movie mentioned above (Take it to the limit) is the only footage I have ever seen of the "Monster" in action. I got a copy off Ebay a couple years ago for $35. I felt I got a bargain!!! Great footage of Barry Sheene, Steve Baker and other top riders of the day.

Valleyrider,
You are one of the lucky ones. I've only ever seen a couple them up for sale. It would be great if some company could digitally redo it and then put it on DVD, of course I'm dreaming.
If I Remember right the multi cylinder bikes started showing up in 1972. Besides the Kawi H1's & H2s and the Honda 750 4's. Some people were trying the BSA Rocket 3's and the Trident's. Even saw a guy on a Suzuki 750 GT water buffalo. Wish I still had those pictures.
