E-Z-Hook Streamliner Build Video Part 2

Friday, August 24, 2012
Motorcycle Land Speed Racing is gearing up this fall for what could be a historic meet at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Sam Wheeler is re-engineering his E-Z-Hook streamliner for a 400 mph attempt at the Mike Cook Bonneville Shootout, where he will race against his familiar rivals the Ack Attack streamliner (piloted by Motorcycle USA contributing editor Rocky Robinson) and possibly the BUB Number 7 streamliner (piloted by AMA Flat Track legend Chris Carr). MotoUSA featured Wheeler and the E-Z-Hook project in a recent feature (Sam Wheeler Prepares for 400 mph) but the good folks at IGNITION3 have filed another video update.

Episode 2 focuses on the E-Z-Hook’s secondary transmission, which Wheeler refers to as “the big speed secret” of the new streamliner. Powered now by a turbo-charged Hayabusa Inline Four, the E-Z-Hook will rocket up to triple digits via an auxiliary transmission built by Weismann before switching over to the conventional six-speed gearbox. The video includes a comprehensive explanation of the auxiliary transmission from Chris Weismann himself.

Enjoy and keep checking back for more E-Z-Hook updates as the 400 mph plans culminate this September. For more information visit the official E-Z-Hook Streamliner website: www.streamliner.com
