Bonneville Stories Part IV – 1953 Twin Engine Harley Knucklehead Dragster

Robert Bud Schmitt, now 81 years old, built and rode THE MONSTER a two engine Harley Davidson motorcycle which ran at the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1955.
The engines were eighty-inch knuckleheads with 12:1 fuel burning pistons and Bus Schaller reground cams and a carburetor on each cylinder.

In 2005, the 50 year anniversary of his run, Bud returned to the Salt Flats and raced a V Rod.
Best speed – 125 mph.

In 2006, Bud crashed the V Rod at 125 mph and walked away after sliding 500 feet on his stomach. This is the longest recorded slide at the Flats.
In 2007 Bud rode the V Rod again best speed 132 mph.
In 2008 Buds best speed was 169 mph.
Bud plans to live to be 100 but will race until he is 92.
