Dave,I loved the film. This is my dad's Indian, my aunt Vonda and her boy friend poising on the bike, my dad is in the background playing hourse shoes. That is why I made my china Indain, they were a great bike.
Yea lots of wood for sure...can't imagine the work involved in maintaining something like that! Closest thing I've ever seen to a boardtrack is our local indoor velodrome...Forest City Velodrome.And can you even begin to guess how much wood they used to build a mile long track?
I spoke to the previous owners of our locall go-kart track and they said they would welcome MB racing if I got enough riders to make it worth there while. Nobody was intrested, makes more sense to me then to have the Death Race on public streets. Oppss...yes I have said it again, I will get dirty looks at this years rally now."Wouldn't it be neat to have a small scale, say 1\4 mile, version of an old boardtrack where people could go and race their boardtrack style MB's!"
Yes, that would be fun...until you took a fall and had to pull splinters out of your tail. Ouch! Seriously, falling at speed on a wooden track...Wow, wonder what that was like.
