Here's another sideways screamer: This 1971 Suzuki TS185 flat tracker was built and raced by Nelson Gong, a Monterey rider who worked and was sponsored by Rod Powell, the custom car and bike painter. This bike was raced from ’77 to ‘82. It has a modified headstock, custom footpegs, chrome swingarm and ported cylinder. Gong raced Monterey short track in 200cc class, starting when he was 18 years old. He won nine straight races on this bike. When he moved up to a Bultaco Astro, during a race weekend, the Astro broke its crank. He went home, grabbed the Suzuki (which had been converted back to street used because he needed transportation to work) rode back to the track on that bike, stripped it down for racing and went on to win that day.
