AboutThe Client

The purpose of this website is to share the personal recollections of Del Kuhn, one of the top Southern California off-road motorcycle riders of the 1940s-1950s. Though born in 1925, he clearly remembers his “ motorcycle days” like it was yesterday. Del Kuhn rode motorcycles competitively from 1947-1954.

This web site is dedicated in memory of Del Kuhn’s best friend Lloyd Mayer who died in the 1947 Big Bear Hare & Hound.

We also thank our friend, artist Brian Finch for his talents in creating our website logo.

As Kuhn’s wife of almost 40 years, my desire was originally to create a physical scrapbook for viewing by family and friends. As I learned more about those early racing days and the other riders of that time, I realized that Del had a treasure chest of intact sharp memories and vintage memorabilia. I decided with his permission to create a website to preserve and share his knowledge and experiences of this pre-motocross history. This is a part of Southern California Motorcycle racing during the 1940s & 1950s and we are happy to share it.
