John says: Glasgow holds "My" Record for the greatest number of "home" tracks for one city.  London is probably Glasgow's only rival for this record but it is debatable as many Glasgow/London tracks may be locations in their own right.  I am not able to say how many of Glasgow's tracks should bear the name Glasgow Speedway.
An incredible restoration on this machine.  Harley Davidson machines ruled throughout the 1920's until British makes Douglas and Rudge took up the challenge in the late 1920s.

The main British opposition to the American Harley Davidsons.  British bikes took over and with the all-British JAP coming in around 1931 British machines ruled the speedway world until the late 1960s
