That's priceless. Neat to see those things when they were new, and I was 22. Dunno why I didnt ever notice them. The dude with the afro was hilarious, and I wonder why all those type films have the same crappy music.

Thanks, Tab, this is awesome. There's a nice mix of bikes in there... in the first part I saw Puchs, a Motobecane, a Vespa, a Derbi, and a Foxi (Sachs engine). I wish YouTube would let you save movies to your harddrive!

They are in your web browsers cache soon as you are done watching go to your cache, and yank the newest large file and label it .avi

Thats the video, my ipod is full of videos of youtube

"where the blazes is the web browser cache?"

it is under the tools/internet options on your browser. you click on settings then view files. hope that helps.

I thought it was a great vintage video. seems like they use the same narator on a lot of those old films.
Make everyday a terrific day!

The narrator is Maclovio Perez. He is a newcaster in San Antonio.

No way! I'm gonna have to watch it again to see if I recognize his voice this time. He does the weather on Ch. 11.

(PS I used to have white overalls just like the guy in the video...)


edit: If that's him, they made him totally ditch his accent. I still don't recognize the voice as his...

I promise you...it's him. I didn't digitize the opening credits, but has is own screen credit at the very front.

Also...vote on the video to get it some ratings!
