Old school Hare and Hound video-real men!

Post by Firebolter »

Came across this video of desert racing in 1967 and I say real men because the majority of the riders are on big, heavy, no real suspension 4 stroke British bikes like BSA, Triump etc. 801 riders start the race, ~250 finish. This is when Husky was new to the US market. I love the scene where they come to a pit stop, they fuel the guys bike, then he asks for a cigarette and they light him one up, stick it in his mouth and he blasts off-too funny

I found this one from 1964. These are freaking cool man. I love how this one was made. It's got that "Mutual of Omaha" Wild Kingdom vibe! (old school TV show reference for old guys)
