Owned and raced by Bob "Bullitt" Shirey, Bob raced this bike and travelled with his long time best pal, Kenny Eggers, to many of the old race tracks around the country including Springfield & Del Mar, where he placed 4th in 1949. At the Carrel Speedway, he was very proud of three first-place finishes in a row. He also placed first at the Porterville Speedbowl. After retiring from the racing circuit he enjoyed restoring the bike and taking it to numerous shows. Both Bob and his bike were honored at Del Mar in 1995 where he also took a 1st at the Concours Show.
