in three weeks i take my 1965 bonneville to the land speed races in maine, USA currently its the fastest meriden triumph bonneville that has ever been, at 135.259 mph. i'm looking to beat 139.226, which is the fastest 650 cc triumph ever. my machine is M/PG, which means, factory frame, no nitromethane or nitrous, no aero aids, running on gasoline. its smaller than my bicycle, and weighs 280 pounds and runs the mile at around 7250 rpm, which is a lot for an old piece of shit like it is. 649 cc, 11.75 to 1, 35mm keihin FCR, ARD magneto, head by rob hall with OS intake and exhaust valves, billet crank by greg blagus, MAP rods, newby belt, 2.5 x 17-inch suzuki katana wheels, not much else except careful tuning. the competition is all within 2 mph. we'll see how we do.
