Buck Murphy — Team CanAm (1975 – 1977)
Buck Murphy next to his prototype 366cc CanAm at the 1976 Puyallup Trans-AMA race. Judging from the big smile on his face Buck must have liked this motorcycle.
Murphy chasing Honda’s Tommy Croft at the Puyallup Trans-AMA race in 1976. Again he’s pictured on his prototype 366cc CanAm .
Another shot from 1976 open class at Puyallup. Murphy is shown in battle with Marty Smith.
Murphy takes point. Shown here leading Bob Hanna, Gerrit Wolsink, Roger DeCoster, and Gary Semics in moto two at Puyllup. Unfortunately the prototype CanAm shocks had already blown by the time this photo was taken and he couldn’t hold on to the lead.
This photo of Buck was taken in 1998. He’s pictured here with his 1975 CanAm 250 works bike, which he has kept over the years. The bike is still in great condition. Rumor has it that he still shows up for a vintage motocross event on occasion.
