Chariot of 1938 Ben Hur Drawn by Four Motorcycles

This post was originally published on this site

For the Ben Hur of the motor age, no four-horse team would do. Instead, the charioteer–stunting in a sports festival sponsored by a Potsdam regiment in Germany–rides on a rubber-tired chariot drawn by four motorcycles in 1938.

“Reins” in the driver’s hands lead to the handlebars of all four “bikes,” which are harnessed together by three horizontal bars. The har-ness recalls certain farm tractors which are controlled by reins.
