GP Carbs for 2014

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

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.

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.

More to come...

National Record Broken!!!

After 3 years of R&D, lots of fabrication and many trial and errors I got the National AMA sanctioned Land Speed Record at the BUB speed trial at the Bonneville Salt Flats this past week.
The previous record belonged to a beautiful 1955 BSA with 116.977mph. My qualifying run was against a 11mph headwind resulting 123.877mph within the measured mile. My Record run was against a 4mph headwind and the little pre/unit managed to achieve an average of 130.308mph within the measured mile and the new record averaged to 127.092mph.

2013 Race Goodies!!

2012 was ok. As usual we had many mechanical problems that held us from performing better. For this year we have gathered some vintage and a bit more radical race parts.
The record at Bonneville we are after is 124mph in the 650cc m/vintage fuel class and 127mph in the m/vintage gas class. We already went 123mph in 2012 so we are pretty close but its always the remaining few miles which are the most challenging ones. We hope these new parts will make us go faster.
Last year we used the aftermarket nos pistons 11-1 cr with the high dome (left side) but then i have found these original hepolites with the lower dome. I think the high dome creates some kind of turbulance and hinders efficient flame travel. It seems like the hepolites are close to 11-1 cr too, but they have a lower dome which will help with the flame travel.

Any info on these pistons? The # is E2931
Found a pair of late 60's beefy rods, the one
on the left is a p/u con-rod and is much
lighter but not as strong
Found these vintage Harman & Collins cams
they will be the brain of our race bike.

And last but not least a beautiful iron cylinder
head back from the stripper ready for rebuild.
