U.S. Royal rides his jet-propelled bike in a car race, sans helmet, safety be damned, to peddle some tires

May 27, 2012

Bike tire comic book ads can verge into the bizarre, whether it’s Flash Farrell waltzing unescorted around a nuclear submarine or a kid wearing a cape as he rides his tiger-tailed bike. This one lacks such eccentricities, but you have to love the helmetless devil-may-care days of the 1940s. Maybe U.S. could have borrowed a leather helmet from the guys driving open-top racecars. WHY NOT JUST WRAP A WET TOWEL AROUND YOUR HEAD?

If you see some bike-riding idiot on the track at the Indy 500 today, you’ll know who it is.
