Doodle Bug Motor Corps

The photo labeled "Doodle Bug Motor Corps" on the Doodle Bug scoter page is actually a photo of the Walnut Creek Doodle Bug Club, c. 1955. They essentially operated as a youth division of the Oakland, CA police dept. motorcycle drill team. I own the original of that photo. There is a video of them doing drills that has been posted on youtube.
