1908 Harley board track racer replica start-up
I can't start it with the pedals, so I came up with this method. The
leather belt slips too much to crank the motor with the pedals, and it
seems like it will only start when it's turning pretty fast. That's a 12
volt motor bolted on that board, and I'm running 24 volts through it to
turn fast enough to start the beast. It's a 49 cubic inch (800 cc) v-twin
with atmospheric valves and battery ignition. When I get somebody to hold
the camera, I'll get video of me riding it. As for the oil leaks, I'm
ready to give up. I guess it's supposed to leak oil.

1908 Harley board track racer - from scratch
Here's the v-twin at home in the bike. The bike is a replica of a 1908
Harley. The production v-twin came out in 1909, and I read in a book that
they were experimenting with v-twin designs in race bikes in 1908. So this
is my interpretation of what that might have looked like. It's a
scratch-built, 49 cubic inch(slightly over 800 cc's) v-twin with battery
ignition and atmospheric valves in a belt driven 1908 chassis.
I recently tore it down and repainted it. I polished all the metal parts
that don't get painted and put clear enamel on them. Poor man's chrome.
