Off the shelf Board Tracker update
I really wasn't sure about this bike when we first saw the Thomas Harvey website. It wasn't the bike so much, because I think it's a looker, as the idea that motorcycling can support a company that makes a bike like this. I thought if you wanted a modern-powered very trad take on a 1915 board track racer you'd build, or commission, a one-off. Maybe this is the start of something else for the company. Or a labour of love sideline.
Also, that's a big, heavy motor to run without a front brake. Where is it designed to be used? We'll tell you as soon as we find out.
But Sideburn wishes him the best of British. We like a trier. GI
