Dan Daughenbaugh is a man with a plan – a plan to set a new land speed record on his BSA, and filmmakers at Post Agency want to document it, with your help.
Daughenbaugh met up with Post Agency when some of their crew was out riding and broke down, almost directly in front of his house. He helped them get back on the road, but before they sped off they saw enough of him and his work to fascinate them and inspire this project.
For years now, Daughenbaugh has been working on a land speed bike powered by a ’51 BSA Star Twin; he originally acquired the motor from the wreckage of a Philadelphia motorcycle shop that had burned down. He’s been working on his bike, dubbed the Greasy Gringo, ever since.
He’s taken it to the Ohio Mile land-speed event and already set a record there, but he’s hoping to truck it all the way to Bonneville this summer for Speed Week (his third visit), and the guys from Post Agency want to film his efforts. Trouble is, film making costs money; that’s where you come in.
Post Agency is trying to raise money for this project through Indiegogo. They’re at $6,380 right now, but aiming for $15,000 for travel, equipment rental and post-production costs. If they can’t raise the 15 grand, they project is off.
Take a look through their Indigogo page, or view their video clips below and see if you think the project is worth sending some funding.
