I fell in love at first sight with these motorbikes, modern interpretation of board track racing motorcycles. Evocation of banked wood motordromes, of smell of fuel, of speed, of danger, of checkered flag… Each Derringer cycle is custom built and no two are exactly alike. But all succeed with a design at the intersection of nostalgia and adrenaline.
They perfectly capture the simple, pared-down, aggressiveness of early motorsports although they are equipped with a small 49cc four stroke engine meeting stringent CARB tier 3 emission standards. Superb fuel efficiency with a range of 180 miles per gallon. GGB gearbox with centrifugal clutch and freewheel allowing pedals to remain stationary while using engine. 70mm drum front brake, coaster rear brake, and any combination of paint, seat, handlebars, wheels, and other options you’d like. These include such refined details as hammered copper rivets, hand-made leather saddles and white tires. Fuel Tank: 1.8 US Gallon, 87 Octane. Engine Oil: .26 US Quart. Price? TBA. Derringer Cycle.
