Denis Manning Denis Manning

Achievements:
Builder of land speed motorcycles.

Although people speak of the "Rayborn streamliner" or the "Harley-Davidson streamliner", the machine was in fact the Denis Manning streamliner. Manning, born in Los Angeles in 1946, became a fan of land speed record competition when he was a young boy. Mickey Thompson was his idol. After a drag racing career was terminated by an injury in 1965, he turned his attention to designing and building land speed record motorcycles. In addition to building the machines with which Rayborn and Dan Kinsey set Harley-Davidson-powered world records, Manning remains active with Tenacious 2, his current liner, with which he hopes to exceed the Easyrider record of 322 miles per hour.
