1985 Bandito Racing Standard

Dual dropout frame made by CW

Bandito was owned by Dave and Cathy Hinshaw, and was started out of their bike shop (unfortunatly I can't recall shop name) in Corona California. They were basicly a CW with different dropouts, and were made at the same place. The Hinshaws were also ABA track operators and ran the tracks at, the Corona/Norco YMCA (which probably had the worlds steepest gate), the Snipes Park downhill track in Norco, and the San Bernardino YMCA (my home track for many years). Bandito handle bars were CW bars with square tube as an extra brace below the top crossbar. You probably allready know this, but, their most famous riders were Tinker Juarez, and Matt Hadan (with Hadan scoring the first ever quadruple at a national while riding for them). Being as I raced!
at the 3 tracks they ran, I knew some of the factory riders, Leon Philpot (his dad ran the gate) Dave Koch (pronounced cook), and Don Jure. I raced against Koch and Jure. Both were fast, especially Jure who was one of the most naturally gifted riders i've ever seen.
Around the same time, there was another CW clone called an HBS (Hesperia Bike Shop) which had two verical tubes that went from the top tube to the down tube, just behind the head tube. Their handle bars were CW's with a Powerlite style bend.
Anyway, I hope this was helpful, and if I remember anything else, i'll let you know.
Phil

Re: 1985 Bandito Racing Standard

Wow
I rode with all those riders and I used to announce at both Corona and San Bernardino Y tracks for Dave and Kathy. Oh ya and the kid mentioned in the article above is my little brother Donnie Jure. I still ride my 24" Bandito often. It's special to find a story about a piece of my past. I was a Factory support rider. That meant I had a brother who was bad ass and I was a fat old man at age 23 racing I mean they had a 22 and over class. Today I could race in the grandpa class at age 45. Good Times, Good times

Re: 1985 Bandito Racing Standard

I actually remember Bandito taking the photo for that ad. It was in 1985 at the Mile High Nationals in Colorado. The race was at the fairgrounds and that is one of the bronco shutes. I was about 50' away when this photo was taken. I think I actually have some photos from the race that day as one of the Bandito riders was in my class 15X.

Dude I was there. My brother was the guy on the far right in the picture. At that time I think he was riding 15x. I did not race but I remember that it was the 4th of july weekend and that track was fast. I did go out and ride it durning warm up and that first jump was a bitch. I never was that good. Cool to have someone remember that place. can you post or email some of the photos from that day. I would love to see them.

Cheers

Re: 1985 Bandito Racing Standard

Thanks for the info on this bike I have had these bars for years and always wondered if they were the bars that I was led to believe by an old friend. I always knew that they were some sort of CW bars. And the buddy of mine that I go the bars from yrs ago always called them Bandito Bars, however I never had heard of them. So anyways, I'm glad to find out that they are true Bandito Bars after all these yrs. What are they worth???
