John Constant on his 4 valve Indian.

Taken at the Chicago board track in 1912.
Notice the cool shipping crate in the back-ground.

1910 Vanderbilt cup race.

Benelli progress.

Doesn't look like much but, the carb is clean, tank drained and it has a new throttle cable.  Put on the new bars, levers and throttle.  Got some misc. stuff removed.  Still need fuel lines, clutch and front brake cable.  Thanks to my friend Dave for helping with this.  As you can tell from the lift in the floor he has done a few bikes!

Audi E-Tron at 200+mph.

Carl Goudy on his Excelsior.

A & B. Blackman & Sons.

Looks like they made a good living selling motorcycles and bicycles.

Walked away.


Clay modeling with a hammer!

Hill climb images.

Not sure the top bike is a purpose built hill climb bike.  May be a boardtrack bike converted.  It is the earliest example I have seen of a bike sponsored by someone other than the bike manufacture.

Benelli 750 and 900 videos.

These sound so awesome.  The sound reminds me of 1960s grand-prix cars.

Flashback Benelli.

Paul Brodie's 1966 250cc Benelli racer.  If you have never checked out Paul's site it is a must see.  He is a master of all things with 2 wheels!  His site is called Flashbackfab.

Mechanical porn.


Starting grid.

If I remember correctly this is somewhere in the Pacific north west.

Excelsior and Thor.

Indian twin.

A Triumph.
