RACE TO 400MPH! Sam Wheeler’s Streamliner

0

Sam Wheeler pushes for Another Land Speed Record with a little  help from some friends. Sam Wheeler of Arcadia, CA is considered to be one of the best engineer/riders in the motorcycle Land Speed Record game. He will attempt to break the current motorcycle land speed record of 376.156 MPH at Bonneville this week duiring Speed Week. His Streamliner is getting some major changes with help from industry notables such as Parts Unlimited, Vance & Hines, Dynojet, Saddlemen, Belray, ICON, Z1R, Roland Sands Designs and Alpinestars. When we, Performance Machine were asked to manufacture a wheel that could withstand 6,000 rpms and 150 + psi we were honored and had our engineers manufacture a jack shaft rear wheel and hub. Along with good weather and great salt conditions, Sam feels he is more than capable of reaching over 400 MPH!  Check out the short video about his journey.
