The VANSON STAR JACKET is the top part of a two-piece suit for American-Flat-Track racing.
Racing flat track is one of the most exciting motorcycle racing art forms, with roots going back over 100 years. Even early machines could get going pretty fast. Stopping was a different story. . . . that evolved over time. Board racing, Wall of Death events, beach racing, and racing on dirt tracks are all early variations of the flat track sport. Dirt tracks for harness racing were common at fairgrounds throughout America. So, what could be more natural than substituting a motorcycle for a horse and having a race? Of the many old forms of racing, flat track continues in more or less the same form.
Some things change; today the bikes are tremendously more powerful and faster, speeds of 100+ mph are normal. Some things stay the same; no front brakes, on dirt, handlebars touching, sliding around with a foot down on the track for balance... with a steel shoe on your boot to keep the sole from ripping off. Some people call this an unnecessary risk. We think of it as being heroic in a mundane world.
