McMullen built some pretty wild stuff back then- starting with a Newton design definitely helps!
Wonder if this machine is still around?

In 1969, I was living in Melbourne Beach. Our dad would take us up to the boardwalk in Daytona to see all he wild creations that would show up for Big Daddy Roth's show...
Those were the days...and it's when I knew I was gonna be a rider and an owner one day...

I think you mean Big Daddy Rat, the copy cat dude who did the Rat's Hole Shows in Florida.

Ed "Big Daddy" Roth (the real thing), was in L.A. Although he built many show cars and bikes, he didn't throw shows.

Yes, of course...that's who I meant.
Christ on a crutch...it sucks to get old(er)....memories become distorted and the younger cats correct ya...sheesh. LOL Thanks...
