Here's something a little unique.

An original 8x10, that according to the seller is.....

"Showing two 1970 Indy 500 Race Car Drivers in front of the News Bureau Building on a dirt bike.  If I figured this out it is a Bridgestone 100 G/P Dirt Bike.  The bike itself it rare.  That is Gary Bettenhausen standing there.  Not quite sure of the driver sitting.  Maybe Roger McCluskey or ?"

I guess the seller isn't familiar with Bridgestones as the 100 GP is a street bike only.  The dirt/trail/scrambler version was the TMX.  I bought a new 100 GP back in the day, when I was 15 years old.

Neat picture though.  Hopefully someone can identify the other gentlemen.

I've seen this type of print before but never with a 350. Too bad they didn't get one with the proper seat logo & oil tank badging.

Ok, somebody needs to feed this poor fella.  :o You can't be a Bridgestone scary monster if you're anorexic!   ;D

There's just sooooo much wrong with this patch. Really....a pigs face, what's up with that!

The second pic is what it should look like.

Most definitely a copy and probably by someone tripp'n on LSD back in the day!   ;D  ;D  ;D

BTW: Green 350 GTO's were a possibility as that WAS a color option listed on the 1970 Bridgestone factory/dealer brochure. Would love to find one that could be verified.

I didn't ever see that particular photo before, but I (Ace Cycle at the time) gave that bike to Gary as part of an advertising promotion. The bike was presented to the winner of the Night before the 500 race at Indianapolis Raceway Park. He had it for several years and used it as a pit bike during May at the 500 a few times.  He lives a few miles from here, just outside Mooresville, In.

Correction: It was a USAC Sprint car race on May 17, 1970 at IRP, not the Night Before The 500 Midget race.

Are the Bridgestone patches available for purchase?  Where can they be purchased?  The real patch, not the pig one.

Besides the pig face, could it also be the huge neck goiter, the arthritic arm, the mushroom eyeball or you're a little offended by the breast protruding under the arm?  ;D  ;D  ;D

Richard has the best looking patches (and are probably the real deal) for a very reasonable price on eBay....

I wouldn't mind picking up one of these oil stands. They don't show up real often. Too bad his price starts at a point higher than my desire.  :(

EDIT: Well, it's been re-listed with a $50 drop in the opening bid price....   ;D

Another find on a Japan site. I'm kinda surprised I haven't seen more of these type of clocks produced and listed on places like eBay.  ???

I like the use of the "R.P.M." clock face, but you know they put the wrong 350 on it!  ;D

No....Looks like the "right" 350, but it's in the wrong color!

Here's a nice JDM ad for the Bridgestone 180.  8)

*** I love it when people misspell Bridgestone in their ads.  ;D ***
