Default 200 mph naked frame Sportster

An altered Sportster at Bonneville around 1970 ran over 200 mph with a naked frame. This is a small club of maybe 55 bikes in all of LSR worldwide.
Anyone know of this or have a photo? Thanks

Is this the one? A search for Turnip Eater shows a bike with a fairing.

I've run over 200 several times on my naked Sportster, although it uses a Truitt frame.

You're looking for Warner Riley's Sportster.
He went 206 mph in 1973. One way.
Nitro-methane powered.

Nice, photo of the bike please... Do you have a guesstimate of the HP of your bike ?
I do know the 165 MPH naked frame Big twins running one mile on pavement have about 130 HP
