Frank Spittle on The Freight Train Top Fuel Twin Engine Harley ( Part 1)
Frank Spittle, who raced drag bikes for more than 20 years, purchased the Harley-Davidson from Elmer Trett in 1983 and named it Freight Train for its locomotive-like amounts of pulling power. Spittle's best times on the Harley were 7.63 seconds in the quarter-mile at 191.27 mph and 5.19 seconds on an eighth-mile strip at 147.56 mph. In 1985, Spittle wrecked at 145 mph, retired from racing and sold Freight Train to his crew chief, Jimmy "T-Bird" Yelton, who rebuilt it in 1990 in his Gastonia, N.C., shop for Randy Milling to race.

Quickest & the Fastest 1980's style
Elmer trett runs 198mph on a BRAND NEW BIKE, can only guess that it is it
titanium framed bike, we think it is 86 or 87. But somebody, " me"
did a poor job of marking the tape. Enjoy. I don't want to ruin it for you,
because the year before Elmer ran 200mph, but in the semi's he meets up
with Mark Miller that was the quickest bike running a 6.96 the year
before,,,,,,& at this race he ran 7.21. 7.24. 7.26. 7.28

Scale Running Model Harley Panhead Engine by Ron Colonna
Bore: 1 5/16 in.
Stroke: 1 1/2 in.
Two Cylinder Four Cycle
No Castings Used
This engine was scratch built to a scale of 2/5ths or 40% of full size. The
bottom end was taken from a drawing of a Knuckelhead engine that I puchased
on e-bay. The top end was patterned after photos taken from e-bay of Harley
parts for sale. I also bought a Harley repair manual that helped with the
oil system. The crankcase was split into three sections instead of the
usual two for ease of machining. The ignition is solid state and I use a GM
coil which fires the two plugs simultaneously. Timing is advanced and
retarded with the timer body. Two rotating magnets fire a Hall effect
device at the proper times as per full sized points. The engine is large
enough to produce that lovely V-twin sound.
