5. Board Track Exhibit
Board track racing was the pinnacle of two-wheeled excitement back in the day. Danger levels were high as riders rumbled around wooden tracks with high-banked turns on motorcycles with no brakes and engines that spewed oil all over an already slippery surface. Inside the National Motorcycle Museum they’ve constructed a 50 foot long board track exhibit based on one built in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1910. Spread around the track are at least a dozen vintage board trackers, from a 1908 Indian Single “Torpedo Tank” racer to a 1921 Harley-Davidson tracker. A biplane and triplane are suspended above the track. From the dimensions of the boards to the bank of the turn, the National Motorcycle Museum has done a splendid job capturing the spirit of board track racing with its exhibit.
