Harley-Davidson, 1970 – Streamliner

Bonneville, Utah. October, 1976. The Harley-Davidson Streamliner, powered by a single twin-cylinder Sportster engine, rocketed down the famed Bonneville Salt Flats on the second of two runs to set a new World Motorcycle Land Speed Record of 265.492 miles per hour through the measured mile. Piloted byt the late road racing great, Calvin Rayborn, the Harley-Davidson Streamliner set a second that was to stand for five years, falling only after repeated assualts by other mult-engine streamliners with up to eight cylinders. Today, the Harley-Davidson Streamliner still ranks as the fastest single engine motorcycle in the world. (from the sign in the image)
