Board Track Racing of the Early 20th Century



Board track racing, one of the most popular sports of the 20th century, was also one of the most violent sports ever attempted. Crowds flocked to watch motorcycles zip around the track at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour while wearing nothing more than a leather helmet and goggles. Oh yeah, and they had no brakes, and wide open throttles, so fatal accidents were quite common. We have added 3 motorcycles to our collection, a 1929 Henderson, KJ1000 4 Cylinder Streamline Model, a 1909 Indian Twin Original Motor, and a 1914 Eagle Twin.
