Royal Enfields

The question:
There were a few motorcycles that exceeded 200 mph in the early days at Bonneville. All were streamliners.
 
The question is who was the first NAKED motorcycle to exceed 200 mph. No body work of any kind on this bike.

1.Name of entry
2.Powered by
3.Rider
4.Speed
 
Note: the speed was one way only and did not set a record on the return run over 200 mph.

Results:

The winning answer was from Desotoman (Hero member of the forum, Tom Gerardi) but (alas!) he was disqualified, having won the last quiz.

So the burden of being the winner falls on Gary Cole, with Dave Woodruff coming in second.

A summary:
The entry was by Don Sliger / Jimmy Enz
Powered by two 750c.c. Royal Enfield Interceptor motors, connected by gears, running on nitro
Rider was Don Sliger
Speed was 203.16 mph one way, but they broke a chain on return.
The year was 1970

Woody said....
I wondered where the bike went to and in 1998 I 'discovered' it in the lobby of the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, England. I was living in Germany and working in Wales at the time and made it a point to fly into Birmingham just so I could visit the museum.
