This artful shot was taken at the Polo Grounds in New York in 1948. A group of visionaries had built a portable indoor board track for Midgets. A disappointment in New York, it would subsequently be dismantled and moved to San Jose, CA. Unfortunately, it drew no bigger crowds out west and it sallied forth no further. (RA Silvia Collection)

I really need a board track motorcycle...
   they're pointless really to own anymore.... but...... wow......
And I'm pretty sure that you cant own one unless you have the handlebar moustache...pretty sure that's in the rules somewhere. ;D

It wasn't just motorcycles. 1919 Duesenberg team at Beverly Hills. Man, I wish I could have seen this. Look at the splinters on the track surface!
