Bonneville 2019 USFRA

Recommended Posts

Going to start dropping photos here as soon as I sort them out. For now here's a teaser.

 

As far as we can tell this is the first time a Lambretta has ever run on the salt here. 

I blew out my crank big end (cracked the case and everything) on my first run but don't care. It was a blast.

Todd kicked but with a respectable 87.6 mph and I pulled a 81.7mph on his bike. Jay nailed 77mph with his full body S2 running a quatrini 210

 

Special thanks to Jay Keel, Planet Lambretta, Deanspeed and the LCUSA. All of your help and support made this possible.

That 73 pinto rocked. The whole family drove it at one time or another and it sounded great.

A few more photos. Hard to believe this was a week ago. I got the post Bonneville blues. I hope some other LCUSA members come out next year.

What does it feel like riding on that surface? 4 or 5 speed gearbox's ? What stroke crank self destructed? Love the pictures! Bikes look well put together.  Great job! Todd, how much does your bike weigh?

The salt goes through many changes over the course of the day as the temp changes. Somewhat solid in the morning to greased carpet, every run feels different, you know when your on a good one! I ran 20/47 on Indian 200 gearbox, 60/115 Monza 225 I forgot what Mike ran, but I know he had his 4 speed in there. I haven’t weighed my scoot yet but I did drop 20 lbs and it made a big difference.  Good times Stu. I’m going to make a few changes and try to get this 90mph scoot up 10 more for next year.

4 speed SX200 box. I tried for days to set up my MBD 5 speed but it wasn't happy in that case. My first run on the salt and the crank spread. It caused the rod to go bang :(  (58/116 MEC crank). 

Todd had me do a couple of runs on his bike.

Run 1, I got 47mph do to hitting a soft stretch in the middle of the track and the bike picked up a speed wobble

Run 2, 81mph

Like Todd says, the salt changes all day long and depending on, temp, time, breakfast, alignment of the sun, how much exhaust you sucked in from standing in line and how close you are to sun stroke your runs will vary :D

 

If anyone wants to build or even just modify their "fast" bike for the salt just let us know. We learned a ton that weekend. There is a hand full of tech things that have to happen to be allowed to run.

I heard LCUSA got some publicity (a couple of legshield banners in pics) in the Mile High Mayhem article.  I’m not a subscriber, only heard it through Denver James’ post on Facebook.

Next year we’ll have a better setup so we can all run back to back. Your bike sounded great.
 

thanks for setting this thing in motion.
