Max Elvin throwing it all away. #240 is Ross Wells, I believe. This hung on the garage wall for years as a poster captioned "Man's got to know his limitations..."


Max Elvin falling off...


Mike Katz picking up Max Elvin's bike. Actually it was Eric Elvin's bike, Max just crashed it...



Mike Katz on his RZ350...

Mike Katz #754...


The twins, Max and Eric Elvin...




Eric Elvin and yours truly


That's all I got til I drag out a few more boxes.

Thanks, Miguel! I dig the 400's, too. This one set a record for most miles covered in a 24-hour period at the 24-hour down at Willow Springs 22 years ago. This is me and Eric...


And this was mine. It had the 400 frame and aluminum deltabox swing arm but had the 600 motor. Knowing what I know now, I would have kept the 400 motor...

Hey, thanks for checking them out! I had a blast going through them. Lots of good memories in those boxes of photos, for sure.

The pics of those twins are interesting. I bet usb3 couldn't transfer as much data as fast as they seem to be transferring with a glance.

Does Bates leathers still exist?

Yeah, Eric and Max are pretty close. It's a special thing to grow up a twin. It's always "When we were in 4th grade..." or "On our 8th birthday..." or When we were growing up..." It's always "we," there is hardly ever an "I" in there. Pretty cool. They had a good time racing together.

And, yeah, Bates still makes leathers



A few more that were posted in a different thread a year or so ago...

Tom Montano





Mike Mondo


Dwayne Chung, Dave Deveau and JoeBrett Williams


Eric Elvin (taken by Nick Cedar 1987)

Absolutely! Post `em up! Feel free to add the 80's to the title, too.

I've got some more from when the nationals were held at Sears, too. Not necessarily AFM'ers, but they have a place in this thread, too, I think.

Kurt Hall taking home the goods from Portland. I think he was still with the Humans when this was taken, beating the factory guys. Gotta love it...



Jimmy Filice took 4th this day in the 250GP at Sears in 1989



Paul Kellogg (AFM 400 Prod Champ 1992?) Mike Krynock (AFM, WERA, AMA, World SBK qualifier, Dakar finisher) and Eric Elvin in Grattan, MI


I gotta fire up the scanner again.
