Storyline

First video documentary ever produced on U.S. motorcycling before World War II. This full-length documentary features rare stills and never-before-seen films of all major two-wheeled activities, ranging from action on dirt and board tracks to hill climbs and Gypsy Tours - and virtually everything in between. The documentary also includes colorful interviews with seven of the sport's greatest riders and racers. Sadly, all of the interview subjects have since passed away, preserving their stories and making this documentary even more important. These interviews show the riders' personalities and the real color of motorcycling's glory days. Written by johnvan2008
