#199 Todd Cameron
I enjoying the challenge of riding in the 2018 CB for the first time on # 117 1916 Harley JD. This original paint JD which has been raced in the family since the 40’s is modified with era correct 74 cubic inch Recardo Cylinders. Being born into a family of motorcycle racing and collector enthusiasts, I am driven and honored to keep the family history alive by competing in the Cannonball.
A little about me I am a retired Mechanical Engineer/fabricator/ tinkerer from Cal Poly, I worked for NASA a few years. I build with my own hands and race almost anything that has wheels all out of my home race shop. Bicycles, motorcycles Motocross bikes, 125cc shifter karts, road race cars, off road cars, antique trucks, antique motorcycles, 24 hours of lemons cars, dabbled in NASCAR a few years, own and race hot rodded electric cars and solar cars.
Its always exciting racing my 2017 Yamaha R1 then flashing back 100 years to the no power and no brakes of the 1916 Harley JD.
My Grandfather, JD John Cameron, was a rugged hero known for his lifelong passion for back in the day Classic American Motorcycling. He purchased, restored and raced his reputable collection. Grandpa finished the challenge of the 1984 Great American Race on a 1926 Harley two-cam JDH and Flexi side car noted in many publications at that time. It is an honor to actually ride and show these historic Americana classic motorcycles across the US
