With an asking price of $1,500, this might be the cheapest way to get yourself a land speed racer that’s set multiple records! This 175cc salt racer set records in A (Special Construction) groups: APS-PG, APS-PF, A-PG, A-PF.
For those of you that have as much knowledge of land speed racing as I do (not much), this is what those categories mean:
APS-PG: Special Construction Partial – Pushrod Gasoline
APS-PF: Special Construction Partial – Pushrod Fuel
A-PG: Special Construction – Pushrod Gasoline
A-PF: Special Construction – Pushrod Fuel
This bike was part of the “Saltbiscuit” team, who are retiring after setting 8 records over 12 years. The package includes the bike as well as an extra frame, engine, spares, leathers, tuning equipment, and tools. The bike started as a Shanghai Shenke scooter which has been highly modified (including lowered shocks and a longer swingarm). It’s got a Zongshen 175cc engine with Nitrous Oxide that has “dyno’d at close to 100 miles per hour” and is ready to ride right now. Last year it ran in the 80s but “lots of salt demons plagued us.”
