Lets see if anyone knows. Here is a couple of clues.

- It was known as "The Bankers Hot Rod". It would run 145 mph as sold off the showroom floor.

- Roughly 20% of these cars went directly from the dealer to the race track and were never licensed for street use.


Interior

Note: 150 mph seedometer

I SPLOODGED.

That is one great bike. ~1966 Triumph 750. I don't think of this as a "rat bike", I'd love to have one.

This is a bike made from a 1952 Vincent 1000cc engine. Check the vid of the company that made it.

Thanks. She's actually my old man's bike, but he let's me ride her a few times a year when I visit back home. She's a '67.

Ya'll got something special in that bike. Congrats to you both!

I have a ~1966 kawasaki 650cc twin engine. I swar that if one didn't know better,you'd think it was a 650 BSA engine. I'll check that website as I'm going to build a bare bones marble shaker with the kaw 650 after I finish this....1958 Imperial
and redo this...1957 Chrysler 392 Hemi 550 hp



I may drag that 650 kaw outta 'tha hole' and get a pic to post on that website to get some ideas.

So I take it you're a Chrysler guy? Mopar or no car

I've got a new school car...2010 Challenger SRT8 in B5 blue.

Are those original hemi blocks you have? Or numbers matching?

I like that a lot. Not something you see much of.

I have always been a fan of the 50's Chryslers.

Damn bro, how about you use a drip pan to catch your oil instead of the gravel in your driveway

Not a great picture, but it should be easy to figure out for anyone who knows their stuff.
