Dean, you might appreciate this little LSR bike, once a Honda CT110, managed 111 mph this year @ Speedweek Oz
http://youtu.be/YNZDbvffFEQ (2013, lost the side of the piston)

http://youtu.be/5Lxo8_etNac (2014 GPS "test track prep)

http://youtu.be/f9F6ozxO3rY (2014 GPS "test track @ 15 lb boost)

Top speed was with 30 lb boost (turbo AND supercharged) on fuel

That is certainly impressive. The most impressive part is the crankshaft stayed in it with 30lbs. boost!!

That's too bad. I would have been a hoot to see him make a pass on it.

I'm with Hoof. Was hoping it was for real! I'm easily fooled though.

For an "A" class bike it looks pretty small.

Alp, I think you just redefined the term "low rider"!

Question...sidecar rigs are very low ....Is being low important to wind resistance as much as rider position to minimize his body profile on a open frame bike? Is there less "air" closer to the ground? I know with cars low is important to lessen turbulent air flow drag under the chassis

TU. What I know about aerodynamics could be written on the head of a pin. But obviously the less you present to the wind the faster you will go. You, Alp, me all run small capacity engines. Despite our best efforts they can only make so much power. And we create a certain amount of drag. At some point in a run drag will become greater than the power can overcome and that's your max speed. As the engine can't make any more power reducing drag will allow more speed. So anything you can take out of the wind will allow you to go faster.

I built my sidecar as low as I could to keep air out of the underside. Also it was an idea rattling around my head for a long time. I run in the 650 class but the engine is only a 540cc single so I try to reduce drag as much as I can.

After the National Modified vintage class record we now hold the SCTA record for the world fastest vintage 650cc Special Construction class "A-VG".
The new bike/frame that I have built within the last few months ran 139.226mph on gas at the El Mirage dry lake.
This is the class record that belonged to a great Indian LSR for a long time!



Thanks to Travis for this great image!
and thanks to Franz & Grubb Engine for pit support.

Any videos of that 139 MPH run I would like to hear that thing at speed. The last one you put up was music.

I think this is my favorite pix in this whole thread, although I love the thread.

For us guys over here in Hawaii, making it to "Da Salt" is sorta a hopeless dream, we don't know anybody over there, where do we stay, alla that, but I can't tell ya how many times I've dreamed of being at "Da Salt" during Speed Week....
Aloha from Maui,
Willy

Well,bike goes on the dyno today at 11 am. On the dyno two weeks ago the engine made 53 rear wheel HP at 7150 rpm. I made exhaust changes for today's pulls to look for a bit more power. Last year it was 49 rear wheel HP but on a different dyno.That was good for 120 mph into a mild headwind in the mile standing start.
Are you familiar with this bike? Supposedly went 159 MPH around 1960 with an iron head 650...

Yes, that's my friend Gary Richards Fuel bike. He is in Sam Wheeler's teem. We are in the same SCTA club "Milers".

His record in the early 60's was with a alloy head in the fuel class running on high % nitro.

Gary Richards and his dad Rich Richards are the Masters of Nitro-Methane. They are our heroes here in SoCal.


And good luck on the dyno today, let us know!
