Featured Classic:
1980 Mystery Ship

1980 Mystery Ship The late 1970s were heady times for motorcycle innovator Craig Vetter. The man who had changed the motorcycling world with his line of Windjammer fairings in the ’70s sold that successful company in 1978, and moved on to other pursuits. That year, he sponsored two-time AMA Superbike Champion Reg Pridmore on the road-race circuit, and the combination resulted in a third straight title for Pridmore. But Vetter wasn’t just looking for a championship. He also used the team to develop concepts for a project he called the Mystery Ship.
