Video: Experiments in speed. Framebuilder Tom Donhou sees how fast he can go drafting a Ford Zephyr

Framebuilder Tom Donhou has always been fascinated by the land speed record attempts of the 60s, set by those slightly mad pioneers who pushed record from the 300s up towards the 600mph mark in jet-propelled cars built in their sheds. In that spirit, he set out to see how fast he could go on a bike. This video tells the story.
