In the early 1900's, before Evel Knievel or the X-games, there was the Wall of Death - the original, extreme, "grand daddy" of all motorcycle stunt shows. Spectators watch from the top of a cylindrical drum, looking down at the riders as they begin from the bottom-center and ascend a ramp until they gain enough speed to drive horizontally onto the wall.
In a similar act called the "Globe of Death" the riders loop inside of a mesh-wire sphere instead of a drum. The Ives Brother were 9 & 8 years old when they mastered the Globe of Death, and after applying those skills to the Wall of Death at the ages of 17 & 18 years old, they made a traveling show of their amazing talent performing these fangerous stunts and are bringing it to you @ Sturgis Motorcycle Rally!
