Definitely not a mod (you wouldn't catch me riding one of those bloody hairdryers, though Mod music was good); and born too late to be one of the original teddy boys or rockers, but I followed that rocker tradition in the seventies.

One of my mates at the time actually got paid as an extra in the film Quadrophenia - he's the rocker sitting at the back left of the black maria (police van) beside Sting when he gets arrested. He was a bit of a headcase, and we laughed thinking how long it would have taken after they yelled "cut!" for him to stop fighting during the beach scene.

Good post, there was a 1 mile board track in Rohnert park up here in Nor Cal long before Rohnert park was even there. How do i know?? i bought and have a picture of it taken from a biplane in 1921. I bought the pic about 20 years ago from a second hand shop in petaluma ca. Those board track racers were insane, early bikes with no brakes racing around a banked oval a top speed on wood. How insane can you get???

Hi Steel, I tried to google the board track pic up here in rohnert park, but came up with nothing on the net, so i posted that link. Those guys had to have 3 balls to strap an early HD engine on what looks like a shwinn bike. I only have 2 balls so doing 100 on my buell engine harley along the coast road is enough for me...

Can you photograph your old photo, techron, and post it on here? Would be interesting to see it.

Hi steel, i was wrong, it was the cottaty speedway just about 2 miles south of rohrnert park. i just woke and went in the garage and looked at the pic, not my pic but here it is:

Holy crap!!! the pic will not paste and copy, but just do a search "cottaty speedway" and you will see it circa 1921.

Dunno where this was taken, but this seems a good place to share it. That's some pretty steep banking.
