Gyronaut X-1 Restauration Preview

"This bike — when everything is correct — is one of the most wonderful things you can ever ride. If things aren't going well, it's absolutely terrifying."

Relive the history of the Gyronaut X-1 land speed record setting motorcycle, with Bob Leppan as driver, and legendary automobile designer Alex Tremulis (Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg, Tucker, Subaru, among others) as its stylist, the super-streamlined Gyronaut X-1 held the unlimited land speed record for motorcycles from 1966-1970 of more than 245 MPH. Now in the hands of Steve Tremulis, Alex' nephew, this influential icon of Bonneville Salt Flats speed history is set to be fully restored to its former beauty and capability.
