Two wheels, four Grand National Championships, one goofy piece of headgear: Gary Nixon (wearing what we think is a cosmonaut hat or a bra, or maybe a cosmonaut’s bra) takes an unidentified female fan and Dick Mann for a ride at Nelson Ledges in Ohio during the mid-1960s. Mann had already won his first AMA Grand National title in 1963 and would win his second in 1971. Nixon won his titles in 1967 and 1968.
