The Michigan Madman

EJ Potter, the Michigan Madman has not been with us for a while. But we still want to pay attention to this man who especially caused a furore with motorcycles with transversely placed V8 blocks.

He got his nickname after he had figured out how to get away simply, but as quickly as possible: the transmission to the rear wheel thing directly from the crankshaft of such a V8.

The rear wheel was jacked up on the roll after starting. With the spinning wheel above the ground, the macxhine was then rolled to the start.

A lot of gas was given there.
And the rear wheel was put on the asphalt.

The result? Sometimes fast times on a machine with the dynamics and directional stability of a firecracker with a short wick
