East German Motorcycle Racing

I love when a blog’s commenter can complete the story. The MotArt posted these photos found on MajorCalloway’s Flickr with the note “maybe East Germany?”. An anonymous commenter completes the story perfectly. “Thats East Germany, the Sachsenring. It might be 1961 or 1962. International races are only from 1961 to 1972 in East Germany. And with the Honda RC 145, it is international.” Sorry to steal The MotArts thunder, but the thrill of a solved mystery is too good not to share.

More photos at The MotArt and on MajorCalloway’s Flickr Stream.
