Enjoy a bit of motorcycle racing history

Posted on by

This film catches the very essence of boardtrack racing with motorcycles from the 1920’s. These were the days when safety became a thing of worry only after serious deaths, something that has indeed happened in the time as the wooden tracks would suffer serious wearing due to exposure to the elements.

It is very nice to view such a quality film from those days and think at how the tape withstood the test of time. You will see that at one time it was lost and found.

The motorcycles are early Indians racing sometimes even beyond their limits, but that’s where racing starts, doesn’t it? Funny thing how they used to start the bikes!
