1912 Thor Board Track Racer 48x24 Limited Edition Aluminum Print

Regular price $2,500.00 $0.00
This is a very rare Thor Board Track Racer. Only a few factory Thor board track bikes are known to still exist. Thor started out as Aurora Automatic Machinery Co. and made the motors for Indian Motorcycle Co. from 1901 to 1907 when they started producing their own motorcycles under the name Thor. Board track racing was a popular motorsport in the 1910’s and 1920’s and drew crowds of up to 80,000. Many of the Board Track racing stars were killed on these wooden tracks and quite a few spectators as well.
 Each motorcycle is photographed for 2-3 hours, creating 60-100 images. Every individual part is lit up, and then bits and pieces of those images are combined into one photograph in Photoshop. The Photoshop process can take up to an additional 40+ hours! The final product is printed on ChromaLuxe® aluminum, giving the photos an almost 3-D appearance.
