If you look at his other posts it is a norton with a speedway engine. Used to have a manx engine.quote:
...whats that in the garage? Manx? Triton?.....
A red hat is what they give you when you set a new record above 200mph. It signifies membership in the 200mph club (which as you know gets harder to get into every year). You can't just run over 200mph on the salt, you have to actually set or break a record for it to count.quote:
What's a red hat?
It is a good thing you are running in a 500cc class where entry in the 200mph club is....200mph. not that the technology will get you there these days. What about an HD single conversion. I read about some 883 sporty motors that were converted to 500cc singles with a block off plate over the rear cylinder and an overbore. More speed parts, more modern design and metal, and it is still a pushrod engine.quote:
FR, No its still total loss. I have a catch tank underneath so as to not upset the BLM and all the tree huggers. For a speedway motor it sort of makes sense. Fresh oil all the time. For a road bike it makes no sense.
Geeto67, The minimum for a red hat 200 club in 3000cc streamliner is 340!!
