I remember this one's predecessor at a UK drag race,
when back in the late 1960s E. J. Potter, the 'Michigan Madman',
rode 350 Chevy small blocks at Santa Pod Raceway in the UK,
well you now have a chance to own what is described as The World's Fastest Motorcycle in 1973 as confirmed by Guinness Book of World Records, and the bike also held three AHRA world records and went the quarter mile in 8.68 at 172mph! this very motorcycle is up for sale at Bonhams, sadly E. J. died aged 71, he was from Ithaca, MI, he passed away Monday, April 30, 2012, at Rosewood Adult Foster Care, Gratiot County, MI. but he will always be remembered by all that saw his breathtaking races and had the pleasure to meet him in person, R.I.P.
