    We built it! The chassis that is. We built the plugs, the molds, the Carbon Fiber parts and assembled the body.

    Some of you got to see pics on my phone but I couldn't publicly publish any pictures or write about it until it was released to the public.

    Projected top speed 400 mph

    Read through the about section. Very nice.

    2 turbocharged Triumph Rocket III engines producing a combined 1000+ hp.

    Way cool Trimn. I see you are going after Chris Carr's record of 367+ mph set in 2009. Is your rider as small as Chris is? Saves weight. I do like your design bike a little better than the bike Chris rode.

    I saw this bike in the Seattle motorcycle show in 2010.
