• Short Summary

    A motorcycle balancing stunt takes place eighty feet up in the air before an unimpressed crowd.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Risking Death, in mid-air. Something new under the sun - stunting a motor-cycle eighty feet in the air - only "dizzy" people could do this."

    United States of America.

    Various shots of a motorcycle stunt taking place eighty feet up at the top of a mast. The motorbike is ridden around a small circular track; attached to it is a metal framework, that four other people are hanging off or balancing on. Cutaways to the watching crowd shows them looking quite unimpressed. When it has got up enough speed, the motorcycle leaves the track and spins on an axis attached to the frame, turning 360 degrees while the whole thing turns round.
