Hi Guys, just wondering if anyone knew Gary Hickman I think he lived somewhere in Surrey and whould have raced early TZ Yamaha's. I have a Yamaha TZ350B twin shock and I was told that it possiably came from Gary Hickman and was just wondering if he is still around or if anyone would know his wherabouts. Or if anyone would have remembered him racing, or photos would be great. The frame has been modified at one time, the two rear down tubes from the sub frame area have been moved forward below the seat very much like the modification on Kenny Roberts old TZ250 twin shock.

Any help apprehiated, thanks, Ivor

I think he raced regularly at Brands in the late 70's early 80's and always used the race number 13.
