Mert Greeves

Celebrated artist of the auto Tom Fritz catches my McQueen Monday post this week and sends the following note. He gets the Zon super sleuth award (whenever I make one).
Hey Diesel,

Didjya ever wonder about the closing sequence of the On Any Sundaymovie?Malcolm and Steve were on Huskies, and Mert was on a... a... a what?
Look at Mert's bike closely? Especially the tank emblem... It's aHarley XR750 (the sticker says so)!

Look again... That ain't no Harley. He's sitting on his personal MX'r-- a '70 Greeves 360. Apparently, Mert's contract with H-D didn'tallow him to ride one of the new Huskies that they offered to him, sohe came up with this idea.

In case you were wondering... You take care, bud. Tom
