Description1915 Harley Davidson Motorcycles advertising poster. This vintage gem measures 22x32.5" and is in 'A' condition and linen mounted. It celebrates Leslie "Red" Parkhurst who set several speed records and took the top prize in several races, including the massive 100-mile event on the dirt track in Saratoga, New York in 1915. This magnificent and incredibly rare advertising poster was created shortly after the Saratoga race, and boasts of Parkhurst's incredible performance, which he completed in a mere 1:37 minutes and 31 seconds. Parkhurst, who was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1998, is seen tearing up the track at the top of the poster, with a grinning portrait of the rider at the bottom. Less than a handful of these 100 year old posters are known to exist, and most are not in this pristine condition. Expensive. (K01U)
