This guy set some land speed records with his V-8 bikes.
From what I've read this is his first V-8 bike.
Note the "whizzer" fuel tank.
Starting would be an interesting exercise...

Drag to start seems the most viable way. Kick start? Not so much.

Can't tell if he's wearing a "kidney belt" - a popular vintage accessory in the days of hard tail bikes. SW

Looks like a possibility on the belt- just by the size of the buckle.
I really needed one of those at work at times...
