Sorry, I've been heads down doing a few drawings and have not been back here for a while.
I found a photo of two Montesa Cappras at Ascot. John Hateley on the pole.
Novice start of a TT race. (front brakes) Guessing 1969?
So I made a drawing of Lil' John's bike.

Eddie Mulder was also a Montesa 250 Cappra fan. Here he is getting ready to hit the ice in Long Beach with his Spiked Cappra.

Sure looks good.

Proven winner.

Did any of the BSA riders use the yellow paint scheme in flat track, or were most of them red? I believe all of the David Aldana, Dick Mann, and Jim Rice photos I have seen were of the red scheme.

I was told years ago that the Red used was the Hornet / Lighting BSA Red for the team bikes. I have it on my exEmde A-70. My painter at the time tried to match the color from an original Hornet gas tank he had. I have a lot of photos of the GNC BSA's but I can't find any that are Yellow for the Team bikes.
