Given the slower film speeds in the '20s, it's unlikely that anyone would have been able to take a moving shot like that without camera shake, blur, or distortion.

Still, a beautiful photo.

that's the one. i still have a little hope that he is actually riding. based on some really boring science behind photography that i won't completely get into. but the photographer must have his lens opened all the way to get such short depth of field, in turn he could be using a very high shutter speed. but yeah on a more interesting note, i'm in the process of using this photo as a base for my next tattoo, it's gonna cover my entire right ribcage.

Is it just me, or does anybody else think it's cool as hell that the grips of this particular RACING bike are worn right out?

Not to be a buzz kill, but I do think it's posed. His left foot is forward, when it should be backward. And I do believe that switch in the left bar is a dead man switch, not a kill switch...
