Quasars, Isle of Man TT, 1978

Here's another historical moment. I don't think someone's being offered a haircut so they'll fit in the cockpit. Malcome's helmet is hanging off his Quasar's handlebar so he'll be chatting up a woman somewhere off-camera.
This picture emerged elsewhere, unknown photographer. It's 1978, the foreground Quasar is Malcomes normal demonstrator, the green one in the background was put together for this event. RC

Update April 2020. The man in the middle, with the hairy helmet, is Chris Richardson, apprentice at Wilson Bros of Bristol, where the first Quasars were built. Chris tells me that the guy on the right is his friend Tyrone. PNB

Quasar '78

I see a yoofull RC and someone with great hair, who dat? and is that a yung Tribble?

I seem to remember...

Probably what's happening is this;-

The thing in my hand is a spliff. The guy on the right just had a toke and is trying to remember his name. The guy in the middle's head has just exploded.

But I'm not sure. It was the seventies and I was there, how could I remember?

Hairy Helmeted Richardson

Colin, you'll see that I've updated the description above to identify the young Wilson's apprentice Chris Richardson as the man in the hairy helmet! PNB
