Some examples:

"Boris Murray, early mid sixties we think"


"Glenn Grazias: My dad had two crashes on the Parasite.
One was at Vineland speedway he shifted at a spot on the track where the oval track meet the drag strip causing him and the bike to become airborne when he hit the pavement he got in a speed wobble and down he went. The other one was at Lancaster drag strip Goodyear was developing a motorcycle drag tire they gave him the slick. On the first pass the tire grew so much it looked [hooked?] the back wheel and thrown him off at the worst spot on the track top end he slid through the traps and was clocked at estimated speed about 145-150 with no bike. He walked away from both accidents with out any broken bones. He does have scars from being burned."

You're welcome, Peter, thought I'd post a sampling here of the many pics already posted there. I've added a couple of captions in my picture post above. Mention was made of Vineland Speedway (New Jersey) -- that was the site of my first road race, in 1964, production class on my 305 Honda street bike.

Kev, not all the pictures on that page have captions. Sorry I can't replicate the whole site smile I'll put some up now and then that I think might be of interest. Others here who visit FB might do the same?

dam farcebook anyway..that link demands you signup/sign in, grrrr, I might hit somebody with my walker.

When the page is wanted to actually be seen be people in the Other World, the banner comes up leaving a few inches to peer in, but, DUH, I noticed that if'n I click on any picture it opens in a new tab without the bloody diaper, I mean banner and one can see the whole page!
PROGRESS!!!

But not with that page, not your fault I'm sure.

But thanks for the pikkies Kurt, really nice stuff.

nice thread this is..... lots of fancy stuff
about the last pic: Its the famous Red Porsche Killer fun-drag bike of local comic artist Roetger Feldman here in north Germany. Should google for the race against the Porsche of his manager years ago. Was a big happening for motorheads.
He also created couple of other freakout ikes, like the Dolmette, a dragbike fired by 24 Dolmar chainsaws.
If you are interested in his bike related comics, google for Broesel Werner.
And, by the way, his brother Andy is a BSA guy with some quite odd bikes,like a M 20 V-twin called Vampire.
cheers

"Here's a great shot of Alf Hagon warming his slick getting ready for a run. Awesome bike with the V-Twin supercharged JAP, like the huge sprocket on it as well."

(But no mention of the BSA ... .)
