Comments (5)
  1. Cool article! Great memories of these ads in the magazines.
    The ad with the girl in the office outfit holding a machine gun? Thats K.C. Winkler…she did a TON of modelling back then. In Car Craft, HOTROD and many other automotive publications. Cool to see her in a dirtbike ad. Big fan…lol.

  2. Very cool. The advertising worked on me. Bought my first ensemble in 83. Was even sporting the gaitors over my Gaerne boots. I was stylin’ back in the day.

  3. I have a set of these bars on a 2018 sur ron bee electric dirt bike (emoto) a good friend of mine won a lot of races behind this set of bars. I like the mix of oldschool with the new tech for some reason. I dunno just thought id share that.
