Roy Brown, "Cadillac Baby":



I've posted quite a few Cadillac songs. Don't believe I've put this one up yet.

even more Cloverdale motorcycles

I had information that the "77" was Steve Baker, from Bellingham. Not sure if that's correct. "99T" should be Larry Garbe. From the indoor races at Cloverdale, late 1960s. Jim Greenwood collection and probably, again, the photographer.

more motorcycles from Cloverdale

More indoor motorcycle racing from Cloverdale. From 1968. The "99" is probably Larry Garbe. I like the jacket the trophy girl is wearing. Patches for the Totem MC and the Canadian Motorcycle Association. Again, promoted and probably photographed by Jim Greenwood.

Cloverdale indoor motorcycle racing

From 1968. Promoted and probably photographed by Jim Greenwood. Again, Dayton MacKenzie on the "25T".





Tuesday, March 14, 2017

some more motorcycles

More from the Jim Greenwood collection of motorcycle racing photos. He probably took the shots himself. Dayton MacKenzie on the "25T", probably at Hannegan.



Monday, March 13, 2017

some motorcycle photos

Possibly Hannegan, looks to be Dayton MacKenzie riding the "25T". The photos printed July 1965. From the Jim Greenwood collection. He probably took the photographs himself.

Sad to learn about the passing of Victoria's Al Smith. A champion who was well known through the Pacific northwest.
