That there looks like an old Speedway bike! Speedway is awesome!!!! If you haven't seen a Speedway race, you need to. The tracks here in the states are tiny compared to the ones in Europe. Bada$$!

ive been scouring the internet for photos of desert race clubs like the checkers etc. mainly pictures of the brit bikes and the mods they made to them in the late 60's. i havent had much luck finding any.

does anybody have any old photos they could share?
i did check out the show and go blog and it is very helpful!
thanks
