Default 500 tecate

Looking at a old dirt bike rider today 88. It had a article about a works Tecate 500 build for flat track . It was a big contender for the Suzuki lt500. This Tecate is mean it runs a kx engine. Really low with custom + 6 a arms and a front stabiliser . It was made by a man called Richard goss . Anyone ever heard about him or this quad

i have a 87 with a worked 86 kx 500 motor in it. i lengthend the swingarm 2.5 and the front a arms are +3 +1. the machine rips, i have a lot of trouble keeping the quad settled because of the power. before this i had a 2001 kx 500 and that was easier to ride because the power delivery was much nicer. the 86 motor just comes on way strong, i have to play with the jetting prob to smooth it out.
