I remember when I was a kid (I still act like but that’s another story!) My Mom and Dad took me to County Fair of my hometown. One of the most vibrant memories was the Well of Death.
You can hear from outside the huge tube the buzz of the bikes running inside. They didn’t have any mufflers just straight pipes for the entertainment. Before the main event a guy did stunts on a bike running on rollers, not sure how the bike balanced standing still with the wheels moving only underneath it.
The stunt bike usually was a vintage Brit bike or stripped WW2 BMW and boy they where Loud as HELL!!!
I haven’t been in a county fair in a very long time, I wonder if those daredevils still perform, I would love to see it again.
ps: Yes that’s a Lion on the car!!!
