CLASSIC MOTOCROSS PHOTOS: HOW THEY STACK UP

MXA test rider Lance Moorewood got all of the plum assignments during his hey-day back in day. Here, Lance not only got to sit on top of the stack of bikes for the 1983 MXA 500 Shootout, but we let him put them up there by himself. If you are wondering which bike won the 1983 shootout, all you have to do is look at the pile of bikes in order, because this is how they stacked up (from top to bottom) — Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki. As a rule of thumb, motorcycle manufacturers like there to be some mystery about how close their bike came to the top spot — thus the brands on the bottom weren’t too thrilled to actually be on the bottom.
