Did anyone ever put these into pdf format?  I have the files posted here put into a pdf.  Don't know how to post it but I'm sure I can figure it out if there is still the need for it.  Or if I get the original images I can try to pretty them up a bit (try to make the paper white and the letters darker black) and make them into a pdf.

Waiting to get a new scanner, copying tests and articles has pretty much worn my old one out !

Got on of my copies of Yamaha Dirtbikes autographed by Heikki Mikkola and Broc Glover at Classic Dirt today.

Heikki autographed the page with the Foreword he wrote for the book, and Broc autographed one of his photos inside.

Best of all, Broc told me he has a copy of the book too, and it's one of his favourite books.  He was looking through it just before he came to Oz.

He even knew where all the photos of him were inside!

Bill Forsythe (the VMX mag photographer) took a photo of Broc with the book.  If it's not going into VMX mag, I'll get him to send me a copy.
