Chasing 200 mph: One man’s journey to build the world’s fastest vintage motorcycle

Vintage Land speed racing is not just about breaking speed records. It’s about imagination, science, design and countless hours of hard work coming together to create a truly unique machine. Alp Sungurtekin wants to build a vintage motorcycle with a 650cc A-PF engine that will beat the coveted 200mph mark. He has already beaten the previous Partial Streamlining record in the vintage class during the Bonneville Speed Week last year. He continues to work on his dream of getting into the 200 mph club.
