Six day race memorabilia is a small niche section of the vintage lightweight bicycle collectors world. As I have stated in previous blog posting, it is an often ignored or missing much critical study, minus a few exceptions. This race programs exemplify the popularity of the racing in it’s heyday- packing Madison Square Garden for spectators to watch Jimmy Walthour Jr., Alfred Goullet, and Alfred LeTourneur.

Here are a couple sources online about 6 day racing, the programs are from our private collection. The have such vivid graphics and look awesome.
