Tour Detroit Board Tracker Build Pt.1

The donor bike, my 1955 Wasp.

My all time favorite board track racer the HD 8 valve. The best proportioned motorcycle ever made. My insperation for this project.

Interesting weirdness.

More of the same.

A little to stiff.

So this Saturday is the 3rd (I think) annual Tour Detroit. A 30 mile pedal through our beloved city. This is my first time on the tour and I wanted to do something special to commemorate it so I'm building myself a bike - one with pedals. I'm starting with a 1955 Schwinn Wasp that I have had lurking in the garage for years. Want to do something board track-ish with it so stay tuned. Did I mention it's Saturday?
