"Bikes never really appealed to me until I discovered the early board track racers"

As the self-taught fabricator and proprietor behind Vekst Motorcycles, Co has been fascinated with board track racers from the turn of the century and has wanted to use current technology to create a modern interpretation of the classic board tracker.

Rail Bike

Co's friends father was in town summer 2013, and while out for a bicycle ride he was in a horrific accident with a car driven by someone under the influence. He was severely injured and the bicycle was completely destroyed. In light of these events Co has decided to rebuild the bike in a unconventional manor, he has gathered inspiration from aircraft, jdm influenced vehicles, and the city he lives in (Pittsburgh).
