Some more photos from my old albums….
In the early eighties a few of my friends and I got hold of some speedway bikes. Used, or more or less used up speedway bikes was going for little money. I paid for a running Staride/ Jap 500. - NKr (£ 50, $ 85.)
A friendly farmer let us have a field for practice. But complaints from neighbors and a campsite made him go back to growing potatoes.
The bikes were also used on a lake in the winter time.
This is Arild trying to broadside a two valve Jawa…..
Home in the cellar……spanners flying…..probably did more damage than repairs….
I still got this bike….If you notice the rear tire: Dunlop TT100, we were probably going to do burnouts in the street…..
None of us made it as proper speedway riders. But I bet we had more fun on the bikes compared to the PlayStation boys are using nowadays….
