Vintage Video: Eugene’s Westside Motorcycle Club Shows Off on Hwy 99 in 1938

Yes, I’m digging up up some pretty obscure stuff here deep in the tubes of you, but I find these kinds of old home movies quite compelling. This was shot on Hwy 99 between Eugene and Junction City, which is now a busy four lane highway.

The person who posted had this to say “Just in case anyone thinks that stunt riding in traffic is a new thing!” True that.

As to why they were doing this on Hwy 99, my guess is that it was the only nicely-paved highway in the area at the time.
