Bull cycles is proud to offer this fantastic custom built tribute bike. Created to pay homage the old board track racing days of Joe Merkel. The early board track racers are some of our favorite bikes, hey are some of the most simplistic and yet captivating bikes ever built. We just love building these tribute bikes for enthusiasts and collectors alike, he amount of attention they generate continues to amaze us. Sitting next to high dollar custom motorcycle builds in our shop- people always seem gravitate to these bikes. We strive very hard to achieve a very aged distressed look to the bikes that makes everyone do a double take. Put on display these take on the role of a fantastic piece of art. Although it doesn't stop there...

The bike we have here is our rendition of a 1913 Flying Merkel racer, he color is a beautiful eye popping orange, aithful to the originals, ith hand cracked under-base and countless hours of detailed airbrush finishing to achieve that look of a well aged motorbike. Topped of with beautiful hand painted lettering. The finish is all sealed, nd there is no actual oil or grease. No fuel odors, nd it will not leak. Authentic style tires. Our own custom tig welded fuel tank, ustom heavy wall frame. The bike is fully functional and is powered by a 66cc two stroke motor. The bike runs great and will travel about 30MPH at around 80 MPG. Operation is simple with easy pedal start, nd twist throttle. Everything on the bike is steel or aluminum, ll tig welded. Max rider weight is shy of 260lbs, ur tallest guy in the shop is 6'3 and rides these around all the time. These are not built however to survive the rough life of the original board track racers of the day. Nor are they meant for racing (though we do all the time) These are just fun little powered bikes that are great for the pits, ar shows, nd neighborhood cruises. Park it outside the local Pub if you're feeling chatty. Just wildly fun affordable toys. Included with the bike is our own beautiful brass reproduction stand. Molded from originals, nd cast here in the Midwest exclusively for us, hey are great for display.

Bull Cycles is a fully outfitted custom motorcycle shop. Our experience in custom fabrication from sheet metal, achining, elding, ainting and design ensures the bike you are receiving is well built. We are a brick and mortar shop, and have been featured in magazines across the globe. Rest assured if there is an issue, here is someone to call. That being said if you plan on riding this bike on a daily basis, aintenance will be necessary. These bikes are fun and require little attention. Some understanding of adjusting chains, ixing fuel, nd a few hand tools will be needed. These are not modern fuel injected machines. But again, e are here to help. Most of the board track racers we sell are used as display pieces in small museums, ealerships, rivate collections etc., ut we have sold quite a few to people who just enjoy riding as well. In most states these are considered mopeds, nd do not require titles or registration.
