1911 Emblem Twin Factory Racer
Inventory Number: 5010
Lee Taylor and teammate George Evans made a clean sweep at the 1911
Springfield, Ohio Labor Day meet winning every event they entered.
Emblem cataloged these machines as “semi racers” because they were
basically stock motors which were tuned and fitted to short coupled racing
frames. Taylor was killed as a result of injuries he received while racing on
July 4th 1916 after colliding with Merkel factory racer Maldwyn Jones.
