Up for sale is this stunning board track racer replica from Bull Cycles. Finished to resemble the legendary Excelsior motorcycles from those glory (Gory) days of board track racing. Early racers are some of the most simplistic and yet captivating bikes ever built. We just love building these tribute bikes for enthusiasts and collectors alike. the amount of attention they generate still 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.

The bike we have here is our rendition of a 1916 excelsior. in a gun metal grey and red. with gold leaf accents to compliment the brass accessories. hand cracked under-base and countless hours of detailed airbrushed finish work give it that look of a well aged motorbike. There is no actual rust or grease on the bike. so fear not if it is for display. Authentic style ribbed racing tires you wont find anywhere else. Our own custom tig welded fuel tanks made from 1/4" aluminum wont dent or rust. 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. and twist throttle. Everything on the bike is steel or aluminum - all tig welded. Max rider weight is shy of 220lbs. our 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. car shows and neighborhood cruises. Park it outside the local Pub if you're feeling chatty. Just wildly fun affordable toys.

Bull Cycles is a fully outfitted custom motorcycle shop. Our experience in custom fabrication from sheet metal. machining. welding. painting 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. there is someone to call. That being said if you plan on riding this bike on a daily basis. maintenance will be necessary. These bikes are fun and require little attention. Some understanding of adjusting chains. mixing fuel. and a few hand tools will be needed. These are not modern fuel injected machines. But again. we are here to help. Most of the board track racers we sell are used as display pieces in small museums. dealerships. private collections etc. . but we have sold quite a few to people who just enjoy riding as well. In most states these are considered mopeds. and do not require titles or registration.
