Additional Info – As you can see the Cycle Speedway bike had been modified from the standard model. To allow the rider to lean over at the corners of the track and still keep pedaling the main sprocket ground clearance had been increased by modifying the main frame. To allow the rider as low a position as possible sitting, the crossbar has been bent to lower the saddle.
