This rare photos shows the 1973 340cc Starfire that Jerry Bunke raced from 1973 through 1975. This is his 340 (he sold it to his friend who is in the picture) and he also had a 440 that has not yet been found.
The sled was in the condition Jerry left it until his accident in 1978. The owner took Jerry’s name off the hood, grieving the loss of his friend. It has remained largely untouched since then.
The current owner is going to clean it up a little, then the rumor is that it will go on permanent display at M&M Lawn and Leisure in Rushford when it is ready.
My thanks to Mike Honken for sending in this photo!
