Love seeing the racing scene from days of yore. Although there’s no audio, this grainy footage from Kissena Velodrome gives us a glimpse of who was riding the track back in the day. Steel bikes, leather helmets, wool jerseys and of course the ladykiller mustaches.

See also Alpenrose Velodrome circa 1974.
