Default A NAKED BONNEVILLE?

Nope...just kidding. But check this pic out. A guy actually stuck our beloved Series II into a sand rail. That thing has got to be quick!

That'* a good engine for that application. LOTS of low end torque to pull through the rough terrain.

Do you have any more info on this?

I actually contacted the gentleman a long time ago...I gave him a link to bonnieclub and recommended he check out our forum. Might be the same guy. I don't have any more info on him though. I met him on ebay when I noticed that he was selling a bunch of series II stuff. He then sent me the pic. I'd love to take a ride in that! It must be like riding in a naked bonneville

You better hide. That thing was in a Bonneville 2 years ahead of the GP. You should know better.

I've seen videos of that thing in action and thought for sure it was an L67. Reel sweet though. I've seen it do wheelies. I might be getting a sleed next year ( snowmobile). I really want to put a L67 ser 2 in it but I need demensions first.
