The 11-time Top Fuel champion and world record holder, Larry “Spiderman” McBride, is like a kid counting down the days till Christmas.
The Spiderman can’t wait to unveil what is sure to be a gift for the ages – a brand new, state-of-the-art Top Fuel motorcycle. McBride loves his current motorcycle dearly, but is beyond excited at the performance potential of a more modern machine. He has been racing his current ride since 1994 and propelled the marvel of engineering to a best E.T. of 5.74 and a top speed of 248 mph.
Here are some updated shots of the new bike coming together. (click image for larger view)
