Which bike, which issue?

Uno Palm passing

(Posted 11th January 2011)

We missed reporting the passing of an old motocross legend in the magazine so we’ll mention it now.

Uno Palm passed away last August after a battle with cancer.  He was born on the 3rd of May 1944 and started his racing career in 1962.  Uno was a factory

rider for Husqvarna and Puch in the 250 GP series.  Our Swedish correspondent, Nisse Wedin, spoke with Uno earlier last year, in Huskvarna where they discussed the mighty Lindström motocrosser among other things.  The photo below is from that meeting last year and shows left to right - Hans Kennevik, Per Nelander, Roland Karlsson, Uno Palm and Kjell Thorné.  All those guys were members of the Motor Club in Ulricehamn.  The Lindstrom in the shot, a 360cc bike from 1967, is for sale by the way if anyone is interested.
