Joe's Vault: The Cyclist

Today's Vault offering is for you motorcycle enthusiasts.

In June of 1971, KOMO Special Projects presented a film by photographer Bill Jensen called "The Cyclist." He covered the spectrum of the motorcycle - dirt bikes, racing, stunts, fund-raising, even Evel Knievel.

It's very well done, especially when one knows how a show was put together back then compared to now. It was quite labor-intensive to edit. None of the computer drag-and-drop moves as we have now. Film was cut, workprints were made, final prints made for air. Mr. Jensen did a great job.

Time doesn't permit me to present the whole show, so I've showed highlights that touch on just about all of the program. Wonderful stuff. Enjoy The Cyclist!
