"As popular as the classic 1950's jukeboxes by Rock-Ola are, few know that this company once built motor scooters during the 1930's and 40's as well. This Chicago based company, whose classic jukeboxes sometimes sell for thousands of dollars also was a builder of some now very rare motor scooters sought out by collectors. Strangely, the 1 horsepower engine that powered some of the Rock-Ola motor scooters was called the "Iron Horse"

Revisiting the Art of Akira from Halcyon Realms
"Douglas built dirt track bike at the Kingswood factory late 1920s. It had 3 gears but no clutch. Fred Fearnley's Douglas dirt track model has bigger tyres that were available as an option. The engine here has no protection. Not a good idea if you are about to take the bike onto a dirt track."

From the Earth to the Moon.

The 2010 Motorcycle Cannonball is an endurance challenge going coast to coast on road registered Pre-1915 motorcycles. The bikes must be powered by an original engine (updates can be made for safety sake), but the core of the motorcycle must be 95 years old or older.

Following the spirit of George Wyman's the 1902 ride the event starts in Kitty Hawk N.C on Sept 10 and ends in Santa Monica, Calif on Sept 25. Only the strong, the brave, the technically apt and the slightly mad need apply.
