Harken Cycles
first a little history....
Board track, r motordrome, acing was a type of motor sport, opular in the United States between the second and third decades of the 20th century, here competition was conducted on oval race courses with surfaces composed of wooden planks. Although the tracks most often used motorcycles, any different types of racing automobiles also competed, nough so as to see the majority of the 1920s American national championship races contested at such venues.
By the early 1930s, oard track racing had fallen out of favour, nd into eventual obsolescence, ue to both its perceived dangers and the high cost of maintenance of the wooden racing surfaces.
However, everal of its most notable aspects have continued to influence American motor sports philosophy to the present day, ncluding: A technical emphasis on raw speed produced by the steep inclinations; ample track width to allow steady overtaking between competitors; and the development of extensive grandstands surrounding many of the courses.now for the details,
the bike ships as a kit, ssembly is required
Brand new board track racer bicycle/motorcycle
80cc w drop loop frame, ice all red with beutifull cream 26 2.35" tires and brown wheels
leather bag and brown riveted vintage seat. looks great
The frame has engine mounts built in and holds the engine nice and tight
forks are extremely beefy girder forks. take a look, uch heavier duty than most.
please look at harken cycles on facebook. You will see the development of the bike.
Our tanks are built the correct way.I know of some sellers with good looking bikes but the tank may be fiberglass or just a plastic housing covering aregular peanut style gas tank(the tanks included with bicycle engine kits.)
Our tanks are all steel and not a housing. Its a real steel tank and not cheap fiberglass.
So many board track bicycles are listed on ebay for up to 4k and there basically built on beach cruiser bicycle frames bought at walmart etc. Or possibly made by putting 2 bikes together (frankenstein frames).
Pls look at our build on facebook for these bikes. They are built from scratch and professionally painted .
When taking everything into consideration our bike is priced very low. Its is Hand crafted from scratch.After researching im pretty sure you will find there is no better deal for a brand new drop loop BTR with a real steel gas tank.
