This is the same streamliner as shown below, but with an updated shell and twin 800 Nortons. Norton/Harley tranny was supposedly used, and they ran upwards 90% nitro. Explosion problems and high speed wobbles sidelined this awesome liner... Beautiful
Not enough can be said for Denis Manning and his commitment to running faster in a streamined motorcycle than anyone could have ever imagined!!
This was built by/for Denis Manning--the guy behind "The worlds fastest motorcycle" and the BUB in BUB speed trials. Built after the Rayborn Harley streamliner as seen in On Any Sunday. Twin 750 triumphs and I believe a harley tranny. Set a one way record of 274mph in 1972... Beautiful!!!
