Sandy Finkelman's been gone 1 year already.
R&R- Torker- Diamond Back- Wheels N' Things

Here's some pics I thought I'd post.

Sandy and Jason Jensen 1979 at Corona
Notice his Wheels N' Things shop shirt.
He was team manager for Torker at the time.

Sandy dropping the gate at NBA's first San Diego BMX track (1979),
The Velodrome. Sandy built the track and ran it too.
On the gate (l- r), Robbie Kirkum, Deane Hamilton,
Stu Thomsen, Shawn McIntosh, (starter) Sandy Finkelman

Harry Leary winning the 1980 ABA DG National at La Mirada.
Look at Sandy (DB team manager) at the top right jumping in the air seeing Harry winning.

Checking out the bikes and gear it looks 1981 to me, guess I'll take your word for it...your probably friends with everyone in the photos too, right

Hail to Sandy
