About Board Track Racer
Board track racing was one of the most exciting motorsports of yesteryear, and it attracted more than its fair share of daredevils. The lightweight, zippy board track racer motorcycles and banked tracks made for a fast-paced race for its day; board track racers could reach speeds of up to 100 miles per hour, which made the average horse race seem like a snail race in comparison. Thrill-seekers lined up to compete, and spectators flocked to cheer them on. Board track racing fell out of vogue during the Great Depression, as the wooden tracks were fairly expensive to maintain, but the sport still holds a nostalgic appeal. Although the tracks and competitions no longer exist, the board track racer bikes still do. You can find lots of replica motorcycles and even antique bikes on the used market. There are also plenty of photographs, videos, and books documenting the golden era of board track racing, which are popular collectors items. Sellers on eBay offer a variety of board track racing memorabilia, including board track racer replica bikes, photo stills, and vintage ads.
