François Gissy strapped a rocket to his bicycle and kissed his ass goodbye when he reached an unbelievable speed of 207 mph at Circuit Paul Ricard at Le Castellet in Southern France. Designed by Arnold Neracher, this one of a kind rocket bike made a quarter mile pass in just under 7 seconds. The bike was stripped down to almost nothing more than a frame, wheels, and fuel for the rocket. Needless to say swerving was out of the question. One false move and this Frenchman would have been street pizza!
