    In the Early 1900s Harleys and Indians ran on banked wooden tracks all across the US. Broken boards in the track were one of the hazzards these racers had to look for while racing a machine at 100 mph without brakes. One famous Indian racer's nickname was "Splinters". Eventually all these tracks were closed as a result of the high number of fatalities. They are awesome fire spitting machines to see and hear run.

      Almost drooled on my keyboard again! CW should have a Flag that says "DROOL WARNING". Luckily I had a rag handy. Actually it was my shirt sleeve. I truly love it! Surely these early models didn't get close to 100 mph?

      Some of these board tracks had 60 degree banked curves.Nascars steepest is Talladega at 32 degrees. These old bikes could easily do 100 mph laps.Glad you liked it Blunderbus.
