Coordinated motorcycle performance video from the 1950s

Here's a fantastic motorcycle demo by Italian police in the 1950s.


  1. Reminds me of the scene from Meet John Doe where the fascist industrialist shows off his private army of cops.

  2. Hello Mr Pescovitz,
    thanks for posting those beautiful sequences of sync moto-riding.
    Only, I would like to be pedantic and point out that at 0:11 you can see some officials looking solemnly on, and the third from the left I believe is Giovanni Leone, at the time presidente della Repubblica. If correct, this would date the video between 1971 and 1978, Mr Leone’s period of office.
    I dare say the Corazzieri guards (tall fellows with ornate uniforms, you can see one in the background at 0:11) confirm the presence of a president, and at 0:57 Mr Leone appears again right in the middle of the image, a focus of attention. Not as much as the riders anyway…
    Best regards,
    Ernesto Fontana (not anonymous-just too lazy to register right now)
