The Turnip Eater

I'm assuming this is pre-Bonneville but I don't know for sure. I believe it's at Lions dragway and Leo is about to nail second gear. This was the first conventional motorcycle to break the 200MPH barrier (about 50mph faster than Rollie Free on his Vincent) - ultimately hitting 222mph on the salt and placing Leo Payne firmly in the history books. Some say a Sportser is a girl's bike? Ya, ok.
