Harry Pop Kramer is in the spotlight of this 1950s newsreel. He's essentially the Danny MacAskill of his day, entertaining audiences with is bicycle since its invention. Harry Kramer is 76-years-old but he is still able to perform these awesome tricks on all sorts of different bicycles "He was a vaudeville trick-cyclist who performed along the Appalachian mountains. He designed and fabricated his own trick bicycles and unicycles. He could ride his bicycle while standing on his head or jump rope while riding on a buggy wheel. Pop also built a bicycle on which the front wheel could be detached from the rear while in motion. But most importantly, he could hold the attention of an audience. My cousin Cheri boasts, “Pop dazzled people with his dare devil antics.”
