Additional InfoThis bike is a tribute to old racers at the beginning of the twentieth century, and also of a Japanese bike made in 1995.

I made this bike to challenge in the Land Speed race in Bonneville August 2001, to prove to myself, I could run more than 200 km/h, without any suspension and no gearbox.
This bike has 95 horsepower, and weighs 115 kg.

I didn't set any records in Bonneville, but I made different runs at a max speed of 208 km/h.
