Scandinavian Harley racers

Posted this picture on AMCA`s facebook page the other evening, better leave it here as well in case your not by the AMCA site.
What a great photo this is, second from right is "Master" Erik Westerberg, the three others are Danes. Location is Fanø beach, for several years the location for high speed racing with both cars and motor cycles.

The event was hit by a deadly accident in 1923 when Malcolm Campbell lost a front wheel on his 350Hp Sunbeam named Blue bird, this killed a young Danish boy amongst the spectators. This accident made local authorities to forbid the event, hence there where no more speed racing at the Fanø beach.
