Based on the success of last year’s seminar by Marty Christopher on the “History of the Motorcycle,” the Saratoga Auto Museum will be featuring a second motorcycle seminar about the sport of American motorcycle racing in the year 1912. Mr. Christopher will again be giving the seminar, occurring in conjunction with the museum’s “Motorcycles of Competition – From Asphalt To Ice” display of classic racing motorcycles, which opened in October and continues through the end of April.
The current exhibit includes several Indian Scouts, a Harley XR750, a 1956 BSA Gold Star and a 1978 Bultaco Astro. The seminar will be held on February 26, from 11-2 at the museum. Mr. Christopher promises participants will get the full story of motorcycle racing as it happened in 1912, including information about motorcycles, tracks and racers of the day and a few tricks of the trade competitors used to keep a split second ahead of the other racers.
Admission to the seminar is only $8.00 for adults and $5.00 for seniors and children, and will be well worth the cost. More information is available on the museum website, www.saratogaautomuseum.org, or by calling Tracy Paige at 518-587-1935.
