Tried to find Rollie's famous pic but to no avail. LinkSmitty : When one goes back in history a bit like the 50s when the Brits were in power. George Brown & others built Vincent V-twins & J.A.Prestwich V-Twins to the max with super chargers, special frames, etc. All were aiming at possibly obtaining 10.00.
Cliff in using wrestling footwear he is aiming at dropping weight & remember to set the famous Vincent Black Lightening record of the worlds fastest stock(?) m/c the rider stripped down to a swimming suit & lay with his feet behind the saddle so less wind resistance with a 100% flat body on the bike.
