How to Build a Bonneville Salt Flats Motorcycle documents the construction of "The Worlds Fastest Panhead," conceived and assembled by Keith Ball, former editor or Easyriders magazine and current owner of, the most popular biker stop on the internet. Keith walks the reader through all the steps involved in the creation of a true Bonneville Salt Flats motorcycle. From choosing a class to picking an frame, from finding an engine builder to minimizing the aerodynamic drag at 200 miles per hour, Keith explains the how and why of building a Salt Flats motorcycle. A project of this size is bound to suffer setbacks. Keith Ball uses a personal, narrative style to take the readers on a wild ride, through the ups and downs of building The Worlds Fastest Panhead. Building a Bonneville Salt Flats winner presents a whole series of hurdles.

Reviews - What do customers think about How to Build a Bonneville Salt Flats Motorcycle (Custom Builder)?

More correctly titled "How I built a racer w/ lots of help"  Aug 4, 2008
This is more a story of a group effort on how *not* to proceed, ie, "Learn from my mistakes" been-there-done-that 1st hand account. A very entertaining read, it helps to demonstrate that LSR [land speed record] racing is NOT for the light of pocket; the "budget" effort detailed in this story would have been impossible without the considerable sponsorship noted and emphasized (& rightly so) throughout.

This story is about the wrenching leading up to the LSR event, & very short on the "rider's experience" as the author/builder chose to have a professional drag racer ride his machine during the actual record attempt.

Like I said, this is more about "How I bungled things, watch & see what can go wrong" than some formulaic "this is what you need to do" and manifestly more enjoyable reading because of it!
