Desert Sleds

A great image of the Triumphs used for desert racing in south California. That first fella looks a lot like Bud Ekins; west coast bike shop owner and racer as well as pal to Steve McQueen.

Here’s an early Dunlop promotional shot of Ekins and his Trumpet Iron; look at that front wheel!

…and here he is with Steve havin’ fun on a Sunday desert race no doubt.
