summer of '72

A friend of mine and I campaigned a modified 1970 Honda CB 750 the summer of 1972. It was no longer 750 cc's, we ran in a street modified class. Required a treaded street tire (no slick), all street equipment had to work (all lights, alternator, front and rear brakes, etc.) and no wheelie bar.

We ran 1/4 mile at 119+ MPH in 11.6, 11.7 seconds. It really pi$$ed me off when we were practicing and a super stock GTO or Roadrunner would blow me away. It was a lot of fun to take it for a ride on the streets and look for some poor unsuspecting Harley rider or some guy with a pickup truck with loud pipes. Just no contest.....

Amazingly crazy-fast motorcycles. Thanks for posting this.
Oh, yeah, crazy-fast.......that's what I say when I really get on my "Generation 2" '09 Star VMax.

It's not how fast I go, but how quickly I go fast!
