1915 Cyclone Board Track Racer

$49

The Cyclone was a short-lived brand, but made its mark by doing very well on the board track racing circuits of 1910 through the 1930s. Cyclones also did well on the dirt track racing circuit of the day winning many races. In 1914, an Excelsior lost its one-mile speed record title to a Cyclone.

In 2015, a 1915 Cyclone Board Track Racer previously owned by Steve McQueen was sold for US$852,000 at auction. It was the highest price paid for a motorcycle at auction at that time.

Designed by engineer Andrew Strand, a powerful 61 cubic inch (996cc) 45 degree V-Twin SOHC, 45 horsepower engine was the powerplant chosen for the Cyclone. The overhead cams were driven by a vertical shaft with beveled-gear ends, and the cylinder-head had a hemispherical head combustion chamber. The Cyclone was capable of at least 115 mph top speed. Joerns Motor Co. sold the original Cyclone for $350.00
