It's 1911 and a couple come into a motorcycle shop, purchased 2 bikes and ask for them to be delivered to a local showground.

 

Father and son (13) deliver the bikes and are confronted by a slope track.  The son is offered a job as "Motor boy" looking after the bikes in particular that of Crazy Billy Driscoll (one of the team).

 

That boy later marries, teaches his wife and 3 children to ride.  His son Joe Boudreau later rides under the banner of "Outstanding Trick Rider".

 

California Hellriders have one of Joes walls and American Motordrome Co. have Pappy's bike.  Pappy was Louis W (Billy) Boudreau.  The rider who taught the young Billy to ride was Margaret Gast.  Our thanks go out for me from the clipping I found for a supplement article from 1954.
