1961 KR

At least it's got a '61 XLCH tank on it.  This rider, Mike Long, sure has the perfect build for a flat-track racer.  Solid dude with crop haircut, nerves of steel and a winning attitude.  Mike and his wrench, (Hale Klapper) were a winning combination at tracks in Kansas and Oklahoma in the early 1960s.  Mike Long earned National Number 54.  His rides were powered by BSA and H-D. That trophy is huge !  Great photo.
