We ended up running my 72sl350. 888 was our number, it was the oldest and loudest bike in the race.

I told Malcom Smith that I was thinking of running my 510 but built the 350 instead he said that 510 would have blown up. His bike did but they were able to put a new top end on it on the side of the road. The husky would have been cool but I think the 350 turned out to be a good choice.
