160 in a 65.
 Quoting: ScrumpTheTexan

167 in a 65. I had a 1993 RX-7. That thing was a rocket. I could still feel the acceleration when I pushed the pedal to the floor at 160. It felt like the rear end was starting to float so a chickened out and stopped at 167.

Also drove an Indycar at the Indianapolis 500 Speedway. Can't remember the top speed but it was less than the 167.

I did mine on a KZ drag bike that I built.

It still had spokes and those bikes are notorious for high speed wobble anyway (I'd done a lot to combat that, but not enough), and right as I hit somewhere between 158-160, the bars started to shake & that developed into a harmonic wobble that intensified so fast I barely had time to release the throttle before it would've twisted off & endo'd.

Scary as hell but a notch in my belt that my pals wouldn't have believed had they not been on the ride as well.

Dam Scrump. You are dam lucky to come out of that unscathed. I knew a guy that very same thing happened to going around 120. Dam near killed him. He was never the same. He broke numerous bones. Fortunately, he was leathered up with a racing helmet.

Lol... I was wearing blue jean shorts, a t-shirt, and no helmet.

The shit we do sometimes... it's a wonder there are any of us left.
