anyone knows who made this boardtrack bike? and maybe links to different photos or articles?
No idea who built it, but whoever it was is an artist. That thing is beautiful.
I think that is the Whizzer that some motorcycle builder built because he used one on a paper route years ago. I'll check my files.
At first glance that looks like aFlying Merkel. that's the color they used on thier single board track bike. The gas tank looks the same also. they also made a v twin racer later inthier history it was orange with a diferent shaped fuel tank.
I absolutely love that bike. It was featured in Cycle World mag last year. The article says that this custom was made by Dave Miller - a 70's motocrosser, motor builder, 5 times National champ cart racer, exhaust builder. His company DMC does dirt bike and atv pipes.
The article says that he took a modern Whizzer motor and sqeezed 11.7 ponies out of it!!! One-off piston, handmade head, modded crank and 24mm Mikuni...for 85mph top speed.
