Don, are you aware that this looks a LOT like the old buildings at Abbotsford airport? If it IS, that would probably make this pre-59 when Westwood opened? As you probably know, my dad raced bikes at Abbotsford. Were there any bikes races held there after Westwood opened?



It does look a lot like Abbotsford, but would someone come all the way from California (black plate) to race there?

That, and the way the Gold Star is set-up really looks more like at least early sixties. Guys used to come from California to race at Westwood, so maybe?? That's why I wondered if they held races there after Westwood opened. It REALLY looks like Abbotsford, the guys on the roof are looking in the direction of where the old circuit was too. Sure makes me wonder. Wish my dad was still alive, he would probably be able to answer this. Looks like an Eddy Dow front brake on the GS, I could do a little research and see what year he came out with his twin sided front drum conversion.

The fourth photo is the Bob Tillius Trans Am racer. I don't recall how competitive it was but you gotta give the guy an A+ for not following the crowd!
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.
