outrageously fast."

Alp Sungurtekin on Revzilla 650 triumph interview

We race mainly in two engine classes "V" vintage, "P" pushrod and in two body/frame classes "A" Special Construction, "M" Modified Production.
Both vintage and pushrod engines are based on 650cc pre-unit Triumph engine & gearbox combinations. The main difference is that we are allowed to use aftermarket crankcases in the pushrod classes.

The 650cc "Pushrod Fuel"  Triumph engine specs:

  • Thunder Engineering Triumph pre unit crankcases and connecting rods..

"Alp 650 Triumph"

 

Alp Racing Triumph

The concept is an ‘imagined alternative factory design’ from the pre-1956 era; a period-correct design study that might have been produced at the Meriden Triumph factory for the American market.

Alp Racing & Design provides a glimpse into a possible past today, with a street-legal racing machine built for the American market.  It’s a new-vintage Triumph that’s simultaneously strong, fast and classic.

Alp Racing Triumph

Alp’s first machines, including “Asymmetric Aero,” used no wind-deflecting bodywork, and ran in the Unstreamlined class. His first Vintage-class racer made 132mph, with an original Triumph rigid frame and all-iron 1950 650cc Triumph engine, running on gasoline. The “Asymmetric Aero” was the next development, using an aluminum cylinder head and stronger crankcases (still pre-unit), with the bodyhugging chassis that pushed his bike into the Class A “special construction” category.

APS-PF  650

 

Target 200+mph!!  We are ​designing a ​new ​land speed racing motorcycle based on a Triumph pre unit construction engine,​ to be the first to break the 200mph barrier with ​a 650cc pushrod engine.
​This is not a streamliner but ​a sit-on motorcycle!

Follow the build on our social media sites. ​We will also post updates on the NEWS page of this site.
