My Cannonball Baker Racer is a 1936, with its Briggs & Stratton Model H engine that I was able to rebuild with help from Irving Bacon of Hanover, Massachusetts, a subscriber to this magazine. Irving passed away November 16, at the age of 79, from leukemia. He was a good person, always willing to help a fellow man.

I have a need for more information on this racer, such as the number produced, how many exist, and if parts or clubs are available. Also, I need literature, or whatever information is obtainable on these racers. I sure hope someone out there will be able to help me out on this score.
