    Default Motorcycle Hill Climb

    I just found in the parking lot an unused ticket to a Motorcycle Hill Climb event at Mann Hill Sunday, June 3, 1951. It's in great condition so surely it could not have been blowing around for 67 years!
    Does anyone know anything about this event?WIN_20180319_16_56_35_Pro.jpg
    I think I met some old man several years ago who used to race this kind of event. I think he had a 1929 45 that he raced. Anyone know him? Lived near Indianapolis.

    Wow Mike!

    That beats my '66 Peoria TT tickets out of a dumpster.

    Really? You found yours in a dumpster?
    So what are the odds that a motorcycle guy like me finds something like this just laying next to my truck in the parking lot? It makes you wonder where it's been. In someone's collection and they just dropped it? In an old book and it just fell out? Under a bush? The condition is too nice for it being outside so that just can't be.

    Did you look up-wind for a bin, Mike?

    You may have missed a mother lode.

    Mine came out of a "death pile"; Who needs an XR750 manual?

    Mann Hill is about 12 miles southwest of Indianapolis in Southwestway Park.
