Welcome to Flashback Friday – where the penchant for the past is appeased, and the passion for puttering in fashion is still the daily to-do.
Keloland has just recovered an old tape from the archives of 31 years back – and what better way to usher in the 81st Sturgis Motorcycle Rally than to revive the history of this iconic event in all its glory?
The tape follows the day’s festivities in the lives of three rally attendees, showing off the bikes from the past, present, and predictions for the future.
The Rally of today is very different than its first predecessor. The very first Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in 1938 was for racers only and had a total of 15 contestants.
A man named Clarence “Pappy” Hoel is the godfather of the Sturgis Rally and helped get the first Rally off the ground.
