Default Cuddy's bike at 2010 Catalina Grand Prix?

See 2:11 in this video:

YouTube - Red Bull Catalina Grand Prix 2010 - Opening Parade Lap

Some beautiful iron in that parade lap.

You know that, Preston Petty was mounted on a '69 DKW with Curnutt shocks forward and aft, he was also the last one in the parade.

I would have given my left nut just to have made the start line on my old DT2.

In '58 the Catalina GP was the race that got Yamaha interested in dirt bikes btw.

Not too many four strikers in the race, eh Mongo? Liked that yellow '73 400 Maico.

Ah, maybe they'll have a wheelchair class next year. Who knows?

Thanks for the post.

I heard they were reviving the Catalina race, but I didn't know they'd be featuring vintage bikes. Very cool; I hope somebody does a good episode or article on it.

Search youtube. There are several videos up. Also, cycleworld.com has some photos.

Also found this:

sideblog: Dimitri at Catalina UPDATE

There's also a bunch of photos on advrider.com, but I cannot get to them from here.

Check this out:
2010 Red Bull Catalina GP Saturday Results - Dirt Bike Event - Motorcycle USA

Homer Knapp raced a Harley there in 1958. He raced Saturday again, on the SAME BIKE!
