tyler malenky pulled 124.5 AVG-750, altered frame, vintage, gasoline 750 cc

alp sungertekin made 135.5 on his sit-down streamliner, APS-VF 650, altered frame, partial streamlining, vintage, fuel, 650 cc.

elevation at bonneville is 4200 feet. these are both pre-units. nobody is running unit motors there, it seems.


Into the distance a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast how
How can I escape this irresistible grasp?

A Supercharged pre-unit 500cc Triumph Twin , in the APS-VBF vintage fuel class , number 488 , pitchers are a little tricky as my computer skills are not great . A dragbike that I modified to run at Bonneville . There is a pic of me on the bike on a ladies photo site , she uses a Browne box camera .

...how they put a o ring chain there? I think even a 520 o ring do not work, but I am not sure.

Thanks

I use a 520 oring chain on my race bike, it is about the same width as a 530.
