STREAMLINER.COM is the official site of Sam Wheeler’s motorcycle land speed record program.
Sam Wheeler is a native southern Californian who has been passionate about setting land speed records since his high school days. For 50 years he has been building motorcycle streamliners. In August 2006 at the BUB meet on the Bonneville Salt Flats, Sam took his EZ HOOK liner to over 355 MPH and crashed when his front tire exploded.
He was the underdog participant in the greatest land speed record shootout ever when Denis Manning, Mike Akatiff, and Sam’s EZ HOOK liner broke the record that had stood for 18 years repeatedly. At the end Denis had the world record; Sam had the fastest one way time. SPEED channel with Dave Despain were there to record this piece of history and the show and now DVD, WORLD’S FASTEST MOTORCYCLE, ends with Sam walking away from his liner saying “…..I’ll probably never run it again!”
Sam is back. With the key support of PARTS UNLIMITED and other soon to be announced sponsors, Sam is adding more horsepower and changing all those things that are on his long list.
In this video, Sam lays out his plans. This site will track the progress of his journey to take the world motorcycle speed record
