The Indian 101 Scout is the undisputed Best mount for trick riding on the WALL of DEATH. These machines were built in Springfield, Mass. from 1928-31. Yes, 80+ year old motorcycles are still the best. In addition Harley Davidson 2-stroke machines from the 1950s and 70s are also used to perform on the wall and we bring this collection to every show. The display of motorcycles is as much a show as the wall-riding. These machines are alive and working for a living everyday. See the original wallbikes of some the pioneers of the sport. The Scouts of Speedy Babs and The Great LaVonnie along with Samantha Morgans' SX 250 are with us every show keeping their spirits alive on the WALL.
There will be more content here soon please keep checking back.
Harley-Davidson is also present on the WALL of DEATH. First on our Bally(front stage) we have a 2001 Sportster 883 affectionately known as the bally "hack". We ride the bally hack at the beginning of each performance to give the audience a glimpse of what they might see on the inside from the high elevated platform. The bike is set on rollers allowing the bike to be ridden right on stage. Not to worry it is chained to the rollers in the event the rider makes a mistake.
The Harley -Davidson SX 250 also performs on the wall. In 1975 the Motor Company hoping to draw even larger groups of riders into the Harley-Davidson fold, offered for those wanting to explore the options offered by smaller, more nimble machines with on-and off-road capabilities, the SX-250. The two-stroke motor displaced 250 cc, and five-speed gearbox gave maximum flexibility and eager response. Not a huge hit it still filled the needs of many riders. On the wall the SX 250 is used to perform many of the acts in the show one being the "speed of the wall" test-ride. We use them for the light weight power and they look good in our show colors.
We put four wheels on the wall with our two racing go-karts
I am still working on most of this so please check back again. :)
The Scouts alone are an impressive site but to experience them, hear the engines rev, smell the fuel burn and feel them pass inches from you at the top of the WALL will leave you breathless...
