The pursuit of speed has driven many people to do innovative, bizarre, and potentially deadly things. So maybe it should come as no surprise that Alp Racing & Design took a Triumph motorcycle and transformed it into the rocket you see here. The L.A.-based outfit used a Triumph 650cc engine to start in its quest of 200 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats. They took that engine and transformed it from a machine that produces 33 horsepower to one that registers more than 150. The build took more than 1,500 hours to complete, as Alp Sungurtekin and company made a custom cylinder head and hand formed the tubing for the frame. That doesn’t even touch on the engine, which is now fuel cooled and features a total loss oil system. Record or no record, this bike will look good bombing down the flats.
