History on the Move in Lake Forest

The Lake Forest Lake Bluff Historical Society is thrilled to partner with Fred Wacker for History on the Move.

Fred was one of 100 participants in “Motorcycle Cannonball 2016: The Race of the Century,” a coast-to-coast motorcycle run starting in Atlantic City on September 10 and ending in San Diego on September 25. The kicker: only riders who have motorcycles manufactured in 1916 or earlier, were allowed to participate.

Fred was on his 1913 Indian motorcycle, the very same model used by WWI couriers dashing across the frontlines. Fred’s Lucky 13 team is rounded out by Mechanic and Pursuit Person Joe Walano, Fabricator and Machinist Frank Schiddel and the Machine Shop of John Schnittker of Land Air Associates.
