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.

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.
Tell me what you think of it, and send this link to all your board track
