Welcome Sam,

There’s a board track racer waiting on my project list so hopefully I’ll get to build one sometime.   I think there’s lots in common with the ethos of cyclekarting.

The main difficulty with Facebook is the lack of structure, so its hard to find old but useful stuff that’s been posted.   But I know what you mean - fora feel and look so dated.

Anyone who feels like pursuing the Boardtrack line? I bought an old Royal Mail Post bike a while back for exactly that. ranked top bar and totally rideable £60

This is a boardtrack tribute bike I built over a week or so from an old scrap cg125 at a total cost of £13. It runs great and makes lots of noise but it's not at all comfortable, so I've only used it for short blasts round the pits at Santapod and local classic shows. It gets lots of attention and for some reason local barbers and tattooists what to buy it and put it in their shop windows. I want to try it on a wall of death and/or a shale oval.

Rhys, is that one of the BSA Bantam bikes. they are quite cool even if the engine is a little one. Neat exhausts and look sharp in red

No Marek, it's the PO bicycle. It's a very long time ago that a Bantam was £60 :)
There are many old style bicycles used to make Board Track tributes. Any motorbike after about 1930 doesn't look right in my opinion for a board track (and of many other's opinion)
