The Victor McLaglen Motor Corps is a motorcycle stunt and drill team. It was started in 1935 by the Academy Award-winning movie star, Victor McLaglen. In 1936, they won the World Championship Trophy in a competition with the famed Mexico City Police motorcycle team. The trophy is on display at California Harley-Davidson in Harbor City, California. In 1980, the team set a new Guiness Book World Record by putting 22 men on one moving motorcycle. At their shows, they have crashed firewall, built 14-man pyramids, rode upside down, backwards, and sideways and pictures are included in this book. they have had more than 200 members in this elite team and the average length of time for membership is 20 years. Miraculously, prior to 2014, they have had only three leaders. The team has performed across the USA; from San Diego, CA to Seattle, WA to New York City, NY and Daytona Beach, FL, and inbetween. They are now active under new leadership after their previous leader, Harry Fisher passed away suddenly in 2014.
