1968 Baja 1000 Cycle Guide Feature
As you know, I have gotten into collecting old motorcycle magazines. As if I needed more “stuff”, but I guess it is slightly more practical than collecting motorcycles. The great thing about some of these old magazines is that you never know what will be inside. It is like getting a Christmas present and there are always a few hidden gems when you look close.
Today it is the 1968 Baja 1000 from February ’69 Cycle Guide magazine. The lead photo of Larry Bergquist is simply iconic. It represents so much Baja and desert racing history. Larry with his trademark red open face helmet and Long Beach Honda were cornerstones of the So Cal scene. Ron Bishop, Buck Smith, John DeSoto, Whitey Martino, Gary Preston, they are all feature is this time capsule gem.
