Hi to all my fellow Flathead-nuts out there.
Wanted to give you this news straight from the horse's mouth. Just got back from Speek Week at Bonneville where my fastest single 1 way time was 145.963 mph on a 1937 Flathead. You will find this time listed under my Dad's name (Henry Friebus) on http://www.scta-bni.org. My Dad rode the bike at Bonneville for the first time this week on his 83rd birthday. After his record was in the bag, we changed drivers and I got back on doing as many runs as I could tuning as I went to see if I could break that 145mph barrier!
The day after my Dad's 83rd birthday, he did his back-up run which clinched the APS-VF record at a speed of 137.541mph (this topped Dave Iverson's - Broken Spoke Indian - record of 134.572mph).
Records set A-VF = 139.786mph, APS-VF = 137.541mph
Brought the bike home still running, no-one got hurt - it was a great week.
Pictures and details will be posted soon on our website http://www.americancyclefab.com
