1973 Suzuki RN73 Roger DeCoster
1973 500 World Champion
Here are a few
preview photos of Roger DeCoster's incredible 1973 World
Championship Suzuki. The bike is in 100% original condition
(un-restored) as it left the track after its last race in 1973.
It is remarkable that the bike is preserved as well as it is.
This is truly one of the most historical bikes, ridden by one of
the greatest motocross riders of all time. There will be a full
review of this bike later this year, including a full review of
the 1973 500 GP season that went right down to the last moto of
the last race. This was one of the most dramatic finishes in motocross
history. 1973 was the year that long travel made it's debut.
The bottom photo
features the "sand tank" that was used at the final GP at Saint
Anthonis in Holland. Check out the photo vault for photos
of this bike in action.
