In 1953, a short, stocky motorcyclist raced a thundering blue British Vincent across the Bonneville Salt Flats and into the pages of motorcycle history books, setting a world land speed record that endured for 20 years.

The article goes on to mention his friendship with Burt Munro, and his association with Vincent Motorcycles.
