Tuesday night is bike night at my good friends shop. Getting an early start on the preparations for Bub Speed Trials at Bonneville Salt flats. This is our Record holding entry. It runs in the 125cc Partial Streamliner Fuel class. It holds the record at 149.9 mph.

There's very little of the bodywork on at the moment.

Things will be looking different in the coming weeks. I'll share what I can without giving up any trade secrets. Haha.

Here's a short trailer for the film being made about last years effort.

Sweet little bike. Is that an Aprilia RS125R race motor in there and what's with the Cup bike out of focus - is that really 4 pipes or an optical illusion?

Originally it was a Honda RS 125 motor, but we hit the proverbial wall trying to milk it for more HP without it eating itself alive. Now its a Rotax Bottom end with the rotary valve and an Aprilia cylinder/top end. 125CC. Believe it or not we're getting something like 54 HP outta that little thing. We had suspension and traction issues last year that held us back, but those things have been addressed and a few other small things. Friday its getting loaded up and taken to a wind tunnel down south. As aero as it looks there is still a LOT of room for improvement.


As for the bike in the background, that's an Aprilia 250 that's receiving a fresh top end. Not sure what year but I'd guess late 90's early 2000"s. There's two un modded Honda RS125s and a TZ 250 out of frame as well. He's got one hell of a shop. pretty much anything you can dream up can be built there.
