Early dirt track action.

The near bike is an Indian.  I believe the far bike is an Emblem.  Must be fairly early since has bicycle type forks.  No trusses!  Emblem stopped selling bikes in America by 1917.  They continued to sell bikes in Europe until 1925.

1930 Harley patrol bike.

The officer has enough ammunition to go to war!

Harley dealer circa 1951.


Not sure if this is a cafe racer or a full on race bike.  It does not appear to have any lights so, maybe it is a pure race machine.  Cool either way.

Harley twin.

Flea market find photos.

I found this group of photos today at the local flea market.  Not sure where they were taken.

Nice shoes.

1913 Peerless.

Built by M.M. for Peerless.  Notice the degree of angle between the pistons.  Very similar the Curtiss bikes.

Nice Indian OHV single racer.

Also from Mototrud.

Cheetah race cars.

Factory drag car running an experimental 400ci small block from Chevrolet.

Notice the Corvette GS in the back ground and the Cobra hauler.

Getting ready for a rain soaked race track.

What could have been.  I read that these cars equipped with fuelie small block from a Corvette could run with the Big block Cobras.
