T.W.O. - HD Board Track Racers by Kiwi Indian Motorcycle Company

We've devoted a lot of column inches to choppers and bobbers, but in all honesty the board track racer style is a look we're leaning towards more and more. Now, board track racing was a type of motorsport popular in the US during the early 1900s; competition was conducted on circular or oval race courses with surfaces composed of wooden planks banked at up to 60 degrees, hence the name. While our knowledge of board track racing is admittedly hazy, it does seem to broadly resemble speedway racing; some of the detailing is similar to the stripped to the bone look of that genre. This particularly fine Indian-based example is from Kiwi Indian Motorcycles; enjoy.
