The World War II Photo of the Week
for 18 September 2000
It's July 1941 and these Army cyclists are tuning up their bikes at the U. S. Army's Motorcycle School. Featuring "the specialized equipment demanded for the efficient and thorough maintenance and repair of the modern military motorcycle," training at such schools was balanced between what could be fixed in the shop and what was possible to fix out in the field.
