1921 One-Legged Trick Cyclists Jul 6, 2009

Via Shorpy, these pictures are from January 29, 1921 in Washington, D.C. “Herbert Bell and Joe Garso.” were two one-legged cyclists who were most likely war vets (hence the missing legs) and took their love for cycling to a new height in the 1920’s.

Some of these moves look familar, others will remain lost in time for obvious reasons…

Tom and Tony’s silver-surfer move throwback style.

Is that a Gangsta Track fork? Burd, I think I found your long-lost uncle!
