This is listed as an evening race, so CCS racers might have time to check this out.

New Smyrna Speedway, Friday, Oct. 18, 6 to 8 p.m.
 Sons of Speed is a motorcycle race inspired by early 20th-century board-track racing. Featuring stripped-down bikes with pre-1925 American V-Twin engines, Sons of Speed hearkens back to a wide-open, full-throttle, thrilling style of motorcycle racing. Founded by veteran motorcycle builder Billy Lane of Discovery Channel’s Biker Build-Off and Monster Garage, the Sons of Speed race will feature some of the sport’s most accomplished riders, builders, and enthusiasts  at New Smyrna Speedway’s half-mile, paved, banked racetrack.

Their are clearly modern-manufactured parts on these bikes.  But it appears everything is period-correct.

Well, maybe your bike has pressurized oil to lube your overhead cams.  But sometimes it just takes grease on the valve gear.
