HARLEY-DAVIDSON RACING DATA BOOK 1904-1921
WRITTEN BY RICK CONNER
We have all heard of racers “Shrimp” Burns, “Otto” Walker, Ralph Hepburn, Fred Ludlow, “Jigs” Price, Maldwyn Jones and of course “Red” Parkhurst. But what of private racers Crouch, Hooley, Clapsaddle, Shambaugh, Lingo, “TNT” Terpenning or “Wild” Johnny Terhune and all the other H-D riding private racers and their accomplishments.
The Harley-Davidson Racing Data Book 1904-1921 pays homage to all those factory and private racers with compiled records of every Harley-Davidson rider who had competed in any nationally published motorcycle event. Included are names, dates, locations, times and scores for the many known and unknown heroes of two-wheel competition who chose to race a Harley-Davidson during those years of motorcycle competition.
The information contained within was researched from archives containing period copies of The Bicycle World and Motorcycle Review and Motorcycle Illustrated magazines, as well as various period newspapers. Early records are sometimes lacking so although some records found list no rider name or race distance, they are entered to simply verify the historical placing of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle in a certain event.
The book is new, soft cover, 409 pages, English text, no illustrations.
