New Photos of Theo Ozen & The Salt Ghost Surface

Wes White was sent this scan of some photos taken at Bonneville Speed Week around 1966 or 1967, Theo Ozen with his Triumph which we dubbed The Salt Ghost, and that is Burt Monroe's Indian on it's trailer. They were bumping elbows and chasing records back in the heyday. We only had seen one other photo of Theo, it is quite interesting to see him and also the bike, which looks almost exactly the same as the photo below, taken by Jon Glover at Speed Week when we raced the bike there in 2010! The only real differences are the megaphones and earlier 8-bolt iron head top end in the old photos.
