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.

Ice Road Riders

A video from one our members: 19Martinez79

In February 2008 W&W Cycles started to ride the Mackenzie River Ice Road between Tuktoyaktuk und Inuvik on 2 Harley Davidson ® Motorbikes. At a minus record of – 42 °C the windchill reached -60°C for the riders.
The bikes (an original 48 Panhead and a 2006 Shovelhead, completely customized with parts available at W&W Cycles (wwag.com). Both bikes arrived prepared with specified liquids and studded tires and were anyway struck by the severe cold until treated in a heated – or more to say less cold – garage.

The video was filmed with a Panasonic DVX 100 in a Porta Brace Polar Mitten. A wideangle lens was brought but could not be used due to small but centered crystallizing water inside the lens.

The 1948 Panhead is actually displayed at the MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry) in Manchester, as part of the exhibition “Culture, Customising and Harley-Davidson” (running until sept. 15th 2011)
