Max BuBeck's Death Valley Run 2000
This run is an small annual event put on by Max BuBeck.
It is a run of a few hundred miles over a couple of days in October, with one day being all offroad riding!
|This is a picture taken in
1948 of Max BuBeck (On cycle) and his tuner Frank Chase. This bike went
135.58 mph and still holds the title of fastest unstreamlined Indian
The cycle is considered a "Chout" because it's a chief engine in a scout chassis. But definitely no ordinary chief! This one ran methanol through two Schebler barrel valve carbs and was running cams ground by the legendary Fred "Pop" Schunk.
Here is a picture of some of the bikes that showed up this year, in front of
Scotty's Castle in Death Valley,Californina
