Don Hyland bought The Parasite, the first double engined drag bike, in 1964 and a year later came over to the UK Drag Fest and ran exibition races with it. The top photo which sits above my computer desk shows him at Blackbushe.
In the 1980s John Melniczuk jnr, son of the original builder of the bike, tracked it down and restored it and it now lives in the AMA Heritage museum. Got to love Nitro and girders !
