Max Bubeck & Frank Chase with the record breaking Indian "Chout".

At the dry lake speed trials on June 27th the match of the day was between Steve Stevens
on cam-maker Bus Schaller's 74 cu. in. O.H.V. Harley-Davidson and Max Bubeck riding the
Frank Chase-tuned 74" Indian "Chout" (a Chief engine in a 101 Scout frame).
After trading fastest time of the day back and forth, Bubeck emerged the winner with
135.58 mph. This remains the fastest time ever for an unstreamlined Indian.
The "Chout" ran on methanol, fed through twin Schebler barrel valve carburetors.
Special cams were made by Fred "Pop" Shunk. The gearbox carried only
the main shaft acting as a countershaft for the clutch on the single-speed machine.
