    Singles, twins,triples, fours ,sixes & eights,, two stroke, four stroke, it makes no matter, it's the engine capacity , & it has to be produced for a motorcycle & has to be entered in the engine capacity class which it belongs (frame style can vary, but that another story)

    There's a class for everything mate. Mostly.

    Here's the motorcycle class specs for ya :
    https://www.dlra.org.au/class-bike.htm

    Stuart Hooper campaigns a 1950's 650cc Velocette single and has run it at a recorded 191 MPH. That is impressive. It actually got timed at 197 MPH :yikes but he didn't nominate the distance correctly so it didn't count.

    Classes are for capacity then broken down in each capacity to specifics, number of cylinders are not one of them. Fuel type, blown, and age then it goes into body, faired or unfaired etc.

    You can download the rule book free from the DLRA site as well as view the class records.

    Free at last, free at last!
    There are dozens of classes and categories, many with vacant records. The rules are sometimes a little ... elastic. If you wish to object to a record claimed by someone well-known in the organisation who flagrantly ignores requirements, you need to be a member and entered (ie, $$$). Frankly, I don't care that much.
    However, as a new entrant, don't you dare run something as heinous as a braided brake hose in place of the standard rubber one, no matter how old that may be... Not sure how a brake hose can make a standard bike run faster, but rules are rules.

    650 cc. Supercharged I think?

    No idea of power but very slippery, which is very important when dealing with limited horespower (due to cc's).

    I dunno wot is in the red bottle either.

    It's a fair bit of work to do what you envisage, so I'm not surprised it won't be ready in 3 months. 2022 might be looking good though....:clap

    It still saddens me to see Jessi Combs on overhauling even though she passed last year.
    But life is the greatest adventure, up to each of us to decide our limits.
