Default 1971 Luxembourg Grand Prix with Decoster

Some cool video of Decoster at speed. What do you think about the rear wheel travel on the bikes? How about the suicidal fans walking onto the track?

I love watching the old MX films. If you notice, they were running straight expansion chambers, no silencers. I got into MX in 1970 and for the first couple of years we went without silencers. Mercy, your ears would ring until the next wednesday.

I had the good fortune to see most of those guys race when they came to the US for the the TransAMA and InterAM races. Damn, those were good days. I feel lucky to have lived through those days. I miss em.

Looks more like a GNCC race than MX.
