Wauseon Board Track 2011 Final
Board Track Class AMCA Race July 2011. GoPro camera mounted on my 1925 Excelsior Super-X handlebar. Great action up front of this very exciting race. You can look up other vids of this race from different angles. Originally, in the teens and early twenties, these bikes would race on a wooden track made of 2x4s on edge, and banked turns. Throttles were locked on full, using the magneto kill button for speed control. Bikes had no clutches and were locked at direct-drive. Most of the chassis' were short-coupled for maneuverability. These tracks are long gone, so now we celebrate them on the dirt tracks at Davenport, IA and Wauseon, OH. Board Track Class consist of: pre-1928 motorcycles, skinny tires, turned-down or flat racing bars, NO BRAKES, single speed or lock into one gear only, rolling start. No pathetic "Keep Your Motor Running" crappy song here, listen to the wonderful symphony notes of tuned pre-1928 racing motorcycles. So turn up the volume, and go to full screen. The Best!

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.





Excelsior 1919 Boardtrack racer ohc.wmv
Excelsior 1919 Boardtrack Racer. The captain of the Excelsior racing team, Bob Perry had a special relationship with the Schwinn family. Ignaz Schwinn, the owner of the Excelsior Motorcycle Company envisioned Perry as a future executive in the company and did not want him to race, but Perry wanted to race and was on hand to ride one of the new 1919 61 cu.in. OHC machines in its debut at Ascot Park, Ca. on January 4, 1920. The Excelsior team arrived early for testing and discovered that the extremely powerful new engine performed like it could fulfill Schwinn's hopes for a racer that would beat the Indian and Harley-Davidson works machines. On January 3 it was announced that Bob Perry would ride the Excelsior on full throttle around the Ascot oval. He crashed and was killed when he lost control entering a turn at a speed estimated between 95 and 100 miles per hour. "Schwinn was devastated. The Excelsior team withdrew from the Ascot event, and Ignaz Schwinn went into the racing shop and personally destroyed all of the overhead cam engines with a sledge hammer. Not one of the machines survived. This 1919 Excelsior Boardtrack racer was carefully recreated by Paul Brodie, using 6 known photographs of several of the original machines. Caracteristics: Excelsior 1000cc, 61 cu.in. OHC V-twin. Approx. 49HP @ 6000 rpm Speed 120 mph+ Yesterdays Antique Motorcycles Nederweert Netherlands www.yesterdays.nl
