1967 Old School Desert Racing

Here’s some old school cool. After a bit of web surfing we spotted this vintage desert race on Vurboffroad and had to share. Filmed during the 1967 California Mojave Desert, races were cool back then with guys literally showing up on road going BSA, Triumph and Greeves machines, swapping handlebars and going racing.

Suspension was pretty much non-existent back then too as they bucked and weaved through the desert while avoiding the carnage and chaos. And those chalk dust lines you spotted from the heli-cam? Three lines means danger, six indicate a road crossing. After that you just pin it – simples!
