justpinit, I'm totally down for this. I'd be happy to help out. You got a theme in mind, or just old school???

If it's Magoo, I'm soooo down. He's my favourite rider of ALL TIME!

One of my all time favs of Chandler:

Good job Dals correct on all except Hicks(close though) it's actually Bobby Moore............nice full width Jobe pic. A couple more pics: #801 earned a factory ride for 86 after a strong performance in 85 as a privateer but disappeared a couple years later.

Cool.

I'm going with Eddie Warren out of Michigan as #801, but I'm not too sure on that....

Saddleback is one place I REALLY wish I would have been able to ride at (or to spectate at least). There was a great post some time back in this section about Saddleback. Check it out if you haven't already.

dick - VERY COOL about the Jobe pic with that little extra :! . I knew Mitch was working with Georges a while back in Dubai from what I'd read and seen on the net, etc. and it sounded like an amazing opportunity. I'll tell you I was cheering for and very impressed by Mitch at the first National in Kamloops this Spring. Love the guy.

*Also have a bit of a crush on Heidi (my wife is cool with it though :wink: )...Jesus Christ, she's AMAZING; super fast, super friendly, super hot.
