The sound doesn't do this video any justice but it was still fun.  :)

Fun video!  This will either help those guys that can't ride right now, or make it worse for them...   :o

I wonder what this beast will do in a 1/4 mile  ???  I was watching the ticker on my media player and it only takes 8.5 seconds to run it all the way to the top of 3rd gear!  ;D

With the gearing you have that's probably 50mph! ;)

It's closer to 70 mph on the GPS.  92 mph max in 4th.

Cool!
I think the clutch is slowing down the potential time you could have had. Your bike has more guts in it than that.

The Fireball does 0-70mph in 7 seconds with a 19T sprocket gearing.
It's the same as an Interceptor Mk1A from 0-70, according to the Cycle magazine road test of the 1966 Interceptor.
Fireball has the same top speed as the 66 Interceptor Mk1A that was tested in that issue too.
The Fireball essentially does everything that the Interceptor does for speed and power, and gets better fuel economy, and is lighter and quicker handling. I'm not sure if people really grasp that, or not. But that's the way it is.

If you haven't seen the original first video that we ever did of the Fireball #1, even before it was really well-sorted or anything, here it is, with Chumma and ChuckD and the Beastie Boys sound track.
Lots of fun! You'll like it Scottie, it's right up your alley! I think this was early in 2010.
