    THE ROAD HAWGS RADIO NETWORK-CLASSIC CHROME-MOTORCYCLING IN CUBA

    in Lifestyle

    On February 8th, 1963, under the leadership of President John F. Kennedy, the United States severed all ties with the nation of Cuba. Up until that point citizens of Cuba had access to purchasing American goods of all types, including motorcycles. After this travel ban was instituted, these citizens no longer had direct access to parts and accessories to keep these American motorcycles running. Thus began decades of shade-tree wrenching and innovation like none other. The island of Cuba was essentially stuck in time, with its citizens continuing to operate these historic vehicles for more than 50 years. With the recent talk of the United States Government moving to relieve the long-standing embargo, our special guests took the opportunity to visit the island nation and see for themselves what the motorcycle culture was like. The chance to see these antique machines in daily operation and use is for many, the chance of a lifetime. Essentially our special guests Joe Sparrow and Kevin Bean’re took a step back into time and documented the daily life for the legendary motorcyclists of Cuba.

    THE ROAD HAWGS RADIO NETWORK-CLASSIC CHROME-BOARD TRACK RACING

    in Lifestyle

    Dating all the way back to the early days of motorcycling, enthusiasts have always been drawn to the raw energy, speed and horsepower of racing. Throughout the first couple decades of the 1900’s, motorcycle racing was held on oval plank tracks, known as board tracks. The motorcycles which ran on these tracks were the ultimate in stripped-down powerhouses, with no brakes, and only a direct drive system in place of a transmission. Races were held all over the United States to the delight of crowds everywhere. Unfortunately, the danger of these races was all too real. After multiple horrific accidents resulting in the death of riders and spectators alike, board track racing was banned in the United States. While the machines survived, the sport of board tracking was seemingly gone forever; that is, until recently, when a group of enthusiasts have banned together to reinvigorate the lost art of board track racing. Held on dirt tracks instead of lumber ovals, the machines are still flying around in a display of raw power to the delighted smiles of crowds. This week, we at Classic Chrome have the pleasure of speaking with a few of the brave individuals keeping this high-octane sport alive and well. Interviewing Matt Walksler, noted builder, restorer, and award-winning racer, and Brittney Olsen, noted restorer and the only woman successfully competing in this dangerous sport!
