    Ray Weishaar was one of the most popular motorcycle racing stars of the 1910s and 1920s. Nicknamed the Kansas Cyclone, he became part of the Harley-Davidson’s “Wrecking Crew” in 1916. The team’s mascot was a small pig, which they took around the track on victory laps. Because of this mascot, Harley-Davidson motorcycles are called “hogs.” Discover more images highlighting arts, sports, and leisure in the Not an Ostrich exhibit (available online and in person!). www.loc.gov/exhibitions/images-from-americas-library/abou...
