Mert Lawill at Cow Palace 1966

Check out these awesome shots of Mert from 1966. I am not familiar with the type of Harley he's using here but I like the leather jacket with business slacks and loafers combo, not to mention that Bell Helmet, Star maybe? (These great photos are currently on Ebay!)

Man, would I ever love to find one of these helmets as I'm sure seems more protective than the 3/4 helmets out there and still looks cool!

The bike Mert is sitting on is an H-D 350 Sprint built by H-D's old Aermecchi division in Italy. More info here:

I've met Mert a few times in the last 10 years and he's as modest as he was fast.

Thanks Doug for the information. Thats rad about Mert. He seems like he'd be a very exceptional guy and its really hard to find modesty these days. Stretch!
