Does anyone have any information/video/picts of him? I was just watching SOB and I'd forgotten about him. Any infor would be great.

Also- Did Colin Smith ever upload all the SOB stuff? The video was distributed on VCD freely but I'm not sure if it ever made it to the web.

I've been in touch with Larry through email following SOB, and when I get a chance I'll be sending him his clips from SOB to add to his homepage as a wmv.

RideUk magazine had a page on Larry about a year ago, with a little interview and some sequences they shot back in the day.

Otherwise there isn't very much media of him out there as far as I know.
I do have the rest of his Tizer 87 worlds run on VHS (pink Hutch days), but otherwise, you've seen it all on SOB ;-)

If anybody wants to put SOB up as a torrent, or whatever then that'd be great, but I have no decent connection here to do anything from.

Hey Colin- just wanted to say that I really enjoyed watching SOB all over again.

Thanks for the disc,

Matt

I thought he used to ride with Phil Dolan so maybe he would have a way to contact him.

Cool! I am going from memory on Lincoln so I could be wrong. Either way, some older vids would be great to watch. Wasn't Dylan Clayton selling some older vids?

I hope Lincoln does have a bunch of tape, it'd be bad to think that the whole period is gone without a trace.
My footage came from Grant Smith's raw tapes, and he was one of the few guys filming back then, but the good stuff is already all out there on SOB.

James White had some old footage of Stephen Bissaker on one of his videos he did, I guess that may well have been from Lincoln's footage.

Effraim is the guy most likely to have contacts that comes to my mind.
I know James and Dave Beverage to speak to, but I'm not in contact, unless James' 5 year old email address is still up and running.

The other possible source would be the Backyard (now 70s) guys, as they had some videos on sale back then covering contests and riders. They've remastered the Backyard videos themselves to DVD recently, not sure about the state of the older stuff (eg KOC videos)

If we can get the footage together I'd be happy to have a look at cleaning it up and putting it out, but I'm pretty tied up for the next few months.

----I'll have it up in about an hour and a half. If anybody wants it and missed it from back when Dane hosted the files.

----Good clips, I give this one a 4 1/2 out of 5 for an older vid, top quality and good material. I don't know I'd give anything but maybe a Dorkin' vid a full 5, but this is 2nd only to one of those if not equal, since it's all flatland :)
