In Spindleruv Myln, Czechoslovakia was Jim’s first Six-Days competition. Riding a 125cc Penton on a Gold medal pace until 3 hours before the finish on the 6th day, he suffered a mud-packed throttle cable with no spare. Silver Medal was the result. Not able to change a tire in the typical 4 minutes of a seasoned veteran, he rode all 6 days on the same knobbies, making rear traction tricky as shown in photo. Czechoslovakia was behind the Iron Curtain and crossing the border into Czecho was a unique experience. Border guards in look-out towers, no-man’s land, barbed wire fences, and soldiers with machine guns.
