    Old school in Keirin

    Hi all,
    I'm Tomity and 52 Y.O. now.



    I had introduced Velodrome in Japan to everyone with this forum before.

    http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...drome-in-Japan

    I wrote it in "Singlespeed & Fixed Gear".

    And,.... I found the photograph of Keirin in an old age. I hope you like it!!

    I introduce an old photograph to you of forum.
    First of all, it is a photograph of Keirin velodrome.

    They are photographs of the time of foundation where Keirin race of Japan starts.
    Japan after World War II had ended was few of the amusement.

    At that time, Keirin race was very popular among the counterplan.
    The gambling that bets money on the race and makes a profit is always popular, and now too!!

    It was a golden age of Keirin.

    From Hakodate in the north of Japan to Kumamoto in the south. Please enjoy it!!

    Velodrome for Keirin race (47 ground)

    Tomity,

    Thank you for posting these, and thank you for all the advice and information that
    you have shared here at Bike Forums.

    One quick question, are all the Velodromes you posted pictures of still in existence?
