If he’s anything like the guy who entitled his excellent autobiography “Larrikin Biker”, Graeme Crosby might not be a bad guy to work for. A winner of the Daytona 200, the Imola 200, the Suzuka 8-Hour and and the Isle of Man TT, the former GP, F1 and Superbike racer retired from bike racing in 1982. After that he raced automobiles for years down under, and now he keeps busy restoring cool motorcycles. Too busy; he needs help. Here’s the ad he posted on Facebook:
