Picture story: Big bad Boris will see your Kawasaki H2 and raise you...

1 of 6

Boris Murray’s double-engined (2x750cc) Triumph ran on 92% nitro-methane, had just one tall gear and a 4in slick. With it, Murray (who built it, tuned it and rode it) set and held records with all the major drag race series for a decade, from 1965-74. 

He subsequently switched to a two-speed Denco ‘triple triple’ powered by three Kawasaki 750 H2 two-stroke triple motors equipped with Tony Nicosia expansion chambers. He died in November 2014 aged 78.
