A VERY GOOD REPRODUCTION IS AVAILABLE TO SELL; I HAD IT REPRODUCED AT A PROFESSIONAL PRINTING CO. THESE IMAGES ARE FROM THE REPRODUCTION.
A 60-page (plus the covers) Racing Program for the 1975 Summer Season held at the Ed Rudolph-Meadowhill Park Bicycle Track in Northbrook, IL every Thursday night. The dimensions of the program are 5 3/8 x 8 3/8 inches.
There are many photos of the riders who competed at this track together with bio information about many of them. The track officials and sponsors are also listed within the program.
The program contains many advertisements from bicycle related companies as well as articles about bike racing today. This is enjoyable reading and an important piece of research material. The original Program is from the Bill Bina Collection.
