Old Land Speed Record Pic.


I found this photograph in a book called Vincents with big Sid by S. M. Biberman. The subject is Rollie Free , who onSept 13th 1948 broke the 150 mph motorcycle speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats on a modified Vincent Black Shadow. He stripped down to bathing trunks and lay flat on the bike to decrease wind resistance. Kids ( and badassmofo) don't try this at home!!!
