Or the sound you get 2 seconds after hitting a yellow jacket nest with a stick and 10 seconds before that noise is drowned out by your screams  :o

Lots of innovation there.  Hub center steering, triangulated front end, low low bars.  Looks like a Suzuki Cobra top end but is that a side mounted ie rotary valve carb I see there?  Not necessarily the way that drag bike design evolved but interesting to see what was tried.

Something like that could be useful on the salt.

Could be. I too thought the jugs and head looked very suzikish, but I've been wrong before... Once ;) haha

Good catch.  Could indeed be an A7R or A7SS motor.  They had barrels that were shaped much like a T20 and like a smaller version of a T500 in general shape at least.
