I just thought I'd share this with people as I was cruising the LA Times archive I found this.
Seems Everyone's Been Playing Bike Polo
July 12, 1991
I believe the kids of Malama Way, Honolulu, invented bicycle polo. Inspired by nighttime professional games at the old Honolulu Stadium in the 1950s, we adapted fat-tired Schwinns and Columbias to the purpose. We wore no spandex shorts. We played barefoot in the street without helmets. I have the scars to prove it.
here is your direct link for those who don't believe:
I also found a new mallet shaft from a different site. It is same amount of dough as an MKE and while it doesn't have a mainstream name like MKE backing it I can assure you that it comes from the respected bike polo community of the good ol' U S of A.
