The legendary Scott Summers XR600R

Before it gets lost by the sands of time we need a repository of all pics and specs of the bike that unleashed hell in the woods of America.
Post away all who know anything!

Yeah, he was like the incredible Hulk! I ALMOST bought his XR650L about five or six years ago when it was up for sale. It sold CHEAP too! Like for 3500 dollars or something like that! And it was super bitchin!

I saw him on TV and that 600 looked super plush like an old caddy eldorado flying down a bumpy road.

No pics but, I remember reading an article that said he had one particular White Power shock that he coveted. It went from bike to bike over many model years. Although he used both, he seemed to prefer the stock forks over the White Power UDS's.

I rode at Eagle Creek once and it was said riders could hear Scott coming up behind them because the bike was so loud. It would scare the shit out of them as he would blast right though. He was was so fast he was on the gas while going down muddy downhills.

Scott came up with all kinds of nifty mods for durability and longevity. He had pantyhose on the fenders so mud wouldnt stick. His signature fork brace, shortened bars with cut up number plates for brush guards.

Guess even Scott wasn't fast enough for the mud to stick to his bike.

It was a very muddy and cold hare scramble. I can attest being able to know when Mr. Summers was getting near. That big four stroke really stood out amongst the sea of pingers.

I heard that he was in the lead, but near the end of the race, he caught a tree or limb that put him in second. I looks like some of it was still in the rear spokes afterward.

There were some nasty, peg deep ruts in the turns and up the hills by the end of the pro race.
