Here is a quick proof of concept video of the new transmission system I developed for the Racer build.

Anything is possible with some creativity, the right equipment and enough skill.
Anonymous asked: VEKST, It is incredibly inspiring to see you build such a prime example of a true board track racer! I am 15 and discovered board track racers only a week ago whilst finding your creation only till now. Since discovery, I have decided to launch a full pursuit to build my own! I bless you for sharing your work with the world and hope to see more from you. I must ask, for my own work, what type of welder did you use? And, did you build your bike from tubing, if so, what tubing? Thank You VESKT. %%
This is inspiring for me. The biggest thrill for me is when my work inspires others, especially younger people. I wish you the best of luck on your build and if you have any questions feel free to ask.
I use a mig welder for my work and the tubing I have been using is erw tubing.
Anonymous asked: Before I do further research could you give me some idea of costs
I can’t rally give you a straight answer to this question because there are a lot of factors that dictate the cost of each individual bike. But the main two are, engine choice and weather you decide to build a frame from scratch or start with a pre-made frame and modify it to suit you needs. Without a doubt most expensive part of the project is time. How much time are you willing to dedicate to your project?
Here are the details about my bikes
The red v-twin
Approx $4k, 11 months, 3-4 days per week, 5hrs a day.
My current 350cc racer build
Approx $1500, 3 months, 2-3 days per week, 3-4 hrs a day.
With that being said I will never be able to recoup what I have invested in the v-twin, but I hope to be able to with the racer.
I hope this has helped and if you have any more questions feel free to ask, I’m happy to help.
Anonymous asked: What make of motor is this that you are putting into your new build ?
I received this question awhile ago and forgot to answer it. Sorry for the delay I should have answered this sooner.
The new bike is designed to accept any stationary engine from 50cc to 420cc. The engine I’m using is a Honda gx340 clone that is actually 350cc. The gx series of engine will require a special adapter bracket which can be seen in the photos.
