Smile SFMC Member goes 211 mph on Electric Moto at El Mirage ...



“Our rider, Jim Hoogerhyde,
has an impressive resume of
race wins and landspeed records himself”,
said Richard Hatfield, Lightning CEO,
“but Bonneville Speed Week in August is lining up
to be a special event. We look forward to working
with Jim to replace the ?? with an exciting number
for our LS-2?? RR”.

http://lightningmotorcycle.com/landspeed-el-mirage/


(guess this is a pic of the LS-218 ...?)

"With this first, record setting test completed,
Lightning is now targeting SpeedWeek at Bonneville,
August 12-18, 2017, to determine just how fast this
new production RR edition of the Lightning production
HyperBike will go. Lightning is targeting the
replacement of the two question marks in our new bikes name,
with maximum speed numbers from our official time slip.
Lightning’s new design has the potential to smash our own
production bike world speed record of 218 mph[, set in 2012].

Go "Slim" Jim Hoogerhyde!

1914 Harley-Davidson in Golden Gate Park ...

... we get families reaching out to us from
time to time with old family photographs ...





The folks in these photos are
Alexander Craig (perhaps an SFMC member)
and Pat McCarthy (an SFMC member in the 20's).

They were sent to us by Roger Craig,
the grandson of Alexander Craig.
We assume the woman in the second
pic, in the plaid dress, is a daughter ...
note the side-saddle rear seat ...

Roger Craig wanted some
help from the SFMC to identify
the motorcycle in the pics and
SFMC life-member Red Fred
provided the following analysis:

Quote:
Interesting.

The photos are reversed, or a mirror image.

If you could read the Harley-Davidson on the tank,
it would be backwards. We are looking at the
primary side of the bike, and that is on the left.
So this negative is transposed.

We have a 1914-ish single speed model, with some very,
VERY expensive accessories! The speedo almost cost as
much as the bike! It is driven via a cable to that exposed
gear on the front wheel.

You can see the spedo-drive cable coming down, and the
small gear at the end of the right-angle-drive is at about
1:00 of the drive gear on the front hub.

The Acetalyne lighting is pretty cool also, complete with the tail light,
that was fed via a small rubber hose from the handle bar mounted tank.

A shame they don't show the tandem passenger seat. It just may be a
side saddle unit, of which I have only ever seen 2.

The thing that is interesting to me is that the bike appears
to be a single speed. And therefore I say it's a 1914, and not a 1915
from these photos. Because in 1915, Harley-Davidson offered a 3 speed
transmission. Since these folks forked out a lot of money for all the
extras, they surely would have purchased the 3 speed model
over the single speed.

Sure looks like Golden Gate Park also?
