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.

Been spending some time on Rosemary - found some bags and a windshield, made a new rear fender skirt that matches the front skirt Slojoe dug up for me. Found some old trumpet tips for the Buco dual exhaust. Sorted out a few hundred other small issues. Still some work to do but I'm starting to see the whole picture. Rode her into work Tuesday for our annual employee car show. Thanks for the pic Jim!
