2nd September 2011 Lars (From Denmark) came in the AMA record books, with an average speed of 157 Km/h (97.5 mph) over two runs at Bonneville, with his 600cc speed contraption "The Salt Cracker".
It may not sound as super fast, but it is still a Bonneville record. The moral of the story is: It pays of to read the rules and regulations.
Plenty of midnight oil has been burned at Lowbrow Customs with the preparation of several motorcycles for Bonneville Speed Week 2012. The newest addition to the stable of motorcycles is a dual-engine 1955 Triumph motorcycle which will compete in the 1350 c.c. class, in addition to a single engine 1955 750 c.c. Triumph that set two land speed records last year, and a 1967 650 c.c. Triumph that set a single record as well.
