"I am 49 years old and went to most of the Trans-AMA races in Northern California from 1973 to 1977 or so".

"I was and still am a HUGE fan of the Swedish riders of the mid-70's, Torleif Hansen, Hakan Andersson, Bengt Aberg, Arne Kring, Christer Hammargren and Ake Jonsson".

"I'm always looking for new pictures of these great riders".
"I bought this jersey from Bengt Aberg after the 1977 Sears Point Trans-AMA at Sears Point in Sonama California".
"I remember walking back to the car with my girlfriend and another friend and I think I had a fake pit pass that was good enough for me to get into the pits".
"I saw Bengt, who had his van near the fence, so I climbed though the fence and went up to him and said I wanted to buy one of his jerseys for $10.00".
"He started to reach for his race jersey but I pointed to this one, that was the I wanted".
"He handed me this jersey, I handed him the money, thanked him and ran back to catch up with my girlfriend and friend. I was pretty excited about it!"
"It's a bit beaten up but I'm glad I still have it after all these years".
"Enjoy the story", Mike Rush, Playa Del Rey, California
