c 1925 pacer racing motorcycle 2400 cc v Twin For Sale
BAC – Meyer c . 1925 Pacer-motorcycle
Motor pace racing was glamorous but dangerous.
From the early 1900s these cycle races were held al over Europe … speeds rose and accidents became frequent.
More than often tires exploded at over 100kmh and riders thrown under other riders machines.. George Lander, of Chicago, USA, said "Only the clumsy get themselves killed" before starting a race at the Parc des Princes in Paris in 1904. Leander was thrown five metres into the air after 80km, fell to the track, bounced into the seating and died 36 hours later.
A crash in Berlin on 18 July 1909 killed nine when a motorcycle went into the stands and exploded.
The biggest machines were all purpose built with engines as large as 2,400cc / 150 cu.inch.
World championships were held annually, except during wars, for 100 years, both for amateurs and professionals.
The motorcycle for motor-pacing has a roller on a frame at the rear to create a uniform distance to the cyclist. The pacer stands or sits upright to offer a maximum windbreak, and the handlebars are extended to facilitate the stance, in a standarized leather suit that allows for the same slipstream effect for any rider. Speeds of over 100 km/h (62 mph) were often reached…The whole pacer frame was specially designed to create a large slipstream for a racing bicycle and its rider.
The Pacer offered here is equipped with a powerfull “ BAC-Meyer” V twin-cylinder OHV engine. An engine designed by the French Peugeot aircraft engineer Louis BAC
It has a 2.4 litre / 150 cubic inch OHV engine with open exhaust producing about 40 bhp at 1500 rpm
Its magneto is well hidden behind the lower crankcases; the oiltank is fitted with a "drip feed" oil supply directly into the crankcases . This BAC Pacing monster is incredibaly original . Details as , barely used, original tires show that this rare machine did not have a hard live. It comes as it was last used on the track in the 1950ies in France . The same fifties when Karl-Heins Kramer set world record for absolute speed behind such pacer motorcycle with 154.506km/h on the German “grenzlandring” !!!!!
