Haha I figured that much
Was it built just for top speed or does it have a pretty 1/4 as well?

It would suck on the quarter. It had a pretty extreme gear change for the high speed runs. Different blower, lots of goodies. The link above explains it all.

Wow, I just read it has ~450 hp. Isn't that more and more common for the biggest Bonneville builds? Let'* give the Bonneville another shot!

It had 502 whp

BADSSEi had about 520 whp if I remember right

Contrast that with my 375 whp and there is your top 3.
