Vincent at Bonneville World Finals

If in doubt, or it doesn't seem to fit elsewhere - put it here.

Vincent at Bonneville World Finals

Postby John H » Sun Oct 04, 2020 6:31 pm

Vincent has been setting land speed records at Bonneville since 1948. My friend Alp has done it again with a basically stock 1948 engine in his special built frame. The old record for a 1000cc A class vintage fuel was 150+. It is now 177+.
His goal is 200 mph and I'm sure he will get it done. His style is very unorthodox but works well for him.

Vincent has done it again. In two outings the bike had performed well, setting records at both meets.
The goal is to be the first 1000cc vintage class bike over 200mph.

Here's Alp on a record run at El Mirage last month. Not bad for a 72 year old motor.
