1913 Flying Merkel Racer

Cover: Surely one of the most fascinating periods of motorcycle history is the board track racing era. Huge crowds would turn out to see brave young men race their motorcycles around steeply banked, circular board tracks. They ran wide open with short, open exhaust pipes and oil flowing freely from the motors. Our 1913 Flying Merkel cover bike is one of the few machines that has survived from those years.
