    Old SS/FG Racing Photos

    My family has a few boxes full of old biking photos, clips etc. and I am in the process of digitizing them. I figure some people here may appreciate them, so I put them up. The majority of the pictures were taken at Philadelphia area events.



    You can see the set here.

    I don't post here much, but if this belongs in another forum just move it or something.

    Some things don't change. Check out the saddle to bar drop and the shants.



    Thanks for the pics OP!

    Your grandfather is an old school fixed gear bike racer named Kermit. Thats freaking awesome. Time goes on but some things are timeless.

    On a more pertinent note, you can clearly see the guy in picture the OP pasted with keirin grips on his bike but he's holding on near the stem. What a fu*king poser ******bag!!!!! Stocking up on NJS just to impress internet people!

    It's amazing how little the track bike has changed in 100 years. It's also amazing how much it has changed in 100 years.

    Philly people will appreciate this- my grandfather was hit by a car and broke his back after qualifying for the '34 Olympics..... on Kelly Drive. That road scares the **** out of me.

    Awesome stuff. One question, though - do you have access to a flatbed scanner anywhere? You'd get better results than scanning these things and given the cool-factor of these photos, I think they deserve the little bit extra effort.

    That's very cool of you to share these.
