265mph "Sportster"

Denis and his creation.

The "Monster".

The Hot seat.

In 1970 Cal Rayborn piloted this Denis Manning built liner which was powered by a 89ci nitro burning sportster mill they dubbed "the Monster" to a two-way average of 265.492 - good enough for the world record for Denis, Cal and Harley-Davidson.

Recently Denis went back to the salt and grabbed the "worlds fastest motorcycle" record with his latest liner (#7) powered by a home made V4 motor. Chris Carr was at he controls when they broke the 350 MPH mark - good enough for the title and bragging rights. Cool shit.
