Motorcycle Chariot Race 1920s and 1930s

Dressed like Romans and not even wearing helmets, these motorcycle races were the rave back then. A shining duet of V-twin Harley Davidsons bolted abreast, each towing an elaborately decorated chariot with full size H-D wheels. The chariot was driven by the “charioteer” himself instead of a rider, which must have been challenging to control using just a pair of reins seemingly made of leather.
