"Board track racing was a type of motorsport popular in the United States during the 1910s and 1920s. Competition was conducted on circular or oval race courses with surfaces composed of wooden planks. This type of track was first used for motorcycle competition, wherein they were called motordromes, before being adapted for use by various different types of racing cars. The majority of the American national championship races were contested at such venues during the 1920s.

The first board track for motor racing was the circular Los Angeles Motordrome in Playa del Rey, California, built in 1910.[1] Based on the same technology as European velodromes used for bicycle racing, this track and others like it were constructed with 2-inch (51 mm) x 4-inch (100 mm) boards, often with turns banked at up to 45 degrees. In some cases, such as the track at Culver City, banking was 50 degrees or more.[2] Longer tracks were later built - some up to 2 miles (3.2 km) long by 1915 - and lap speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour became commonplace.[3][4][5]"

The stock Felt 1909 beach cruiser is cute, but we felt it needed a little more swagger to bring it up to the caliber of bike our customers are used to spending their hard earned derivatives and mattress money on. So- with that in mind, we yanked the clothes off the bike, spun her around, said some magic words and 'presto!', the Felt 1910 Board Tracker Custom came forth.

We added some special parts in the direction of aesthetic, performance and ergonomic comfort and we blended them to fit and flatter.
