Another desert run out in California. Started in the 1920's and went until 1960. Good collection of photos from the last race. Can't understand why all these guys are using perfectly good choppers as dirt bikes...

Doesn't look anything like Big Bear, but I'd love to see the route they took. That must have been the start or somewhere along the route???? No clue really.... although, great old pics.

All the pics I found seem to be from the start. With all the dust, I guess no one felt like walking anywhere else to take some other shots.

For some reason whenever I see the title of this post, I think of Big Bear Choppers... Cool old photos.

Backside of Big Bear like Steffan said. Start in the high desert, run up to the lake. Sounds like a great plan.
