One of the moderators over at HondaTwins Forums is building an old Honda 175 with a turbocharger (!!!) for a Land Speed Record at El Mirage late next month. Very cool stuff, IMHO. The class record he's going after is just under 71 mph--surprisingly--so hopes are high.

They're selling tee shirts to help fund the trip and the build, in case anyone here is interested in supporting the effort.....I bought two! Here's the link to the t-shirt thread: HONDA TWINS T-Shirt Sale funding 66Sprint's Land Speed Record attempt

And for the curious, here's a link to the build thread: 66Sprint's Land Speed Record bike build and attempt.....

Must've been a hell of a build back in 1960 if with all the modern upgrades he made to it he only beat his dad's record by 0.1 mph over 50 years later.
