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.
Official AMA Timing Tickets of the Record runs.

Inspectors checking out the bore/stroke and verifying displacement.
