Looks good Alp. Love your mill!!! I have a milling machine that looks exactly like a Harbor Freight angle grinder. You're going after Jim's records. I had a look and was surprised. Usually I think of Jim as building hideously fast rocketships. If what you're doing to vintage engines is applied to a later engine it makes Jim's records seem a bit fragile. I'm looking forward to seeing the progress of your build. Keep posting and good luck!

Hey Bill I have a couple of those HF mills too, they do the job, right?

Actually the new engine is going to be a pre/unit as well, the only difference will be the later 9 bold alloy head which has not the same combustion chamber. Maybe a slight compression ratio increase which is not going to matter in the fuel class.

I believe that the challenge of trying to get the tough records makes it more fun and the Honda four valve is the fastest pushrod bike right now. So why not? Lets see what happens.

Tough records...The Bonneville 650 MP push rod gas record of 123 mph looks pretty tough.....
We got interested in the 1000 cc MP push rod gas record held by a Moto Guzzi. Even bought a Guzzi... But beating the 157 MPH naked bike record was gonna be fucking expensive with the multi thousand dollar cost of making the trip from the East....My rider/money man also races on road courses...The road racing trumped for now....I ride the Guzzi on the street.....
I just finished the reworked 650 Triumph engine and it's in the chassis. Hopefully more power and different gearing will give more speed to raise our record.

I don't know anything about the Guzzi's performance but i'm quite sure that your Triumph has the bhp to get the M-PG 123.9 mph record and even more!
Do you have a current picture of your race bike? Are you keeping the Concentrics?

The bike looks like this with the two into one exhaust I fabricated.

I believe if this bike will run 123-125 mph in the standing one mile,and still be pulling at the end ,we have a chance at the Bonneville record. Keeping the Concentrics for now

I'm watching what you're doing also...

Merry Christmas and Happy New year, Wish all of you a fun and successful 2014!!
.
.

And here is the BIG NEWS!!! After having a great 2013 race season we got sponsorship's from some of the best in the industry.

We would like to welcome our new Sponsor to our team,
The Legendary “AMAL Carburetter Company”
Amal supplied us with their Iconic GP Race Carbs, Matchbox Floats and the dual cable Racing Twist Grip for our new A-PF class.



We are very thankful to the folks at Burlen Fuel Systems England for choosing us to sponsor in North America.

We could run TT's or GP's on our M class gas bike but we will continue to run the great Amal Concentrics to surpass our top speed of 132mph on gas.


Dual GP Racing Carbs set up to run on Nitro-Methane!! Stunning work of art, these carburetors are truly amazing..
.



Two Matchbox external floats will feed the GP's.

The original Amal Alloy Body Dual Twist Grip.



More to come...

My other (M-VG) bike still runs on a chain drive, will see how the new one will turn out.

Today i received this from the SCTA. It's actually the run where I seized the cam bush.

Once again Alp a big congratulations on a great run. Next year you'll back it up. And hopefully the new bike will do the deed as well.

Figuring out the intake runners and positioning of the GP Carbs in order to start fabricating the frame.

I almost finished the LSR frame, here is the First Mock-up!
There is still work to do (gussets/tabs/brackets) but you get the idea!



Big Thanks to my sponsors AMAL Carburetors and Morris Magneto.
