    Turbo Honda 175 for LSR attempt....

    This topic will detail my attempts to fabricate a turbo-charged Honda 175 bike capable of breaking the existing 70.33 MPH record currently held by member "5points" riding "Salt Flats Sally"....
    In it, I will detail the "How" of the changes I propose to his basic design and the "Why" I'm making those particular changes.....
    I will need the membership to help me locate and obtain some of the necessary parts for this project......

    Need #1.... the turbo assembly..... There is one on the way as we speak....(pictures and details when it arrives)

    Need #2.... A single carb fed CA/CD 175 VERTICAL type cylinder head......Anyone have a spare?

    I'll edit in more on this later.......

    This will be fun to watch; nothing like old fashion racing; records are meant to be broken and the salt can be unforgiving
    Me likes that head idea fer sure !

    You've got everyone's juices flowing now, Steve.

    1979 CM400T (resting)
    1980 CM400T (just picked up in pieces)
    1981 CM400T (in surgery receiving transplant)
    1982 CM450 (donor engine for 81)

    1985 VT1100C (rider)

    Past rides: Vincents, Triumph, BSA's, Suzuki's, Twingle, Corgy, others.

    Remember, today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday.
    My chest fell, but, fortunately, my belt caught it.
    I don't know everything, nor, have I met the one who does.

    Very Cool!!

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

    Hi Steve, very interested in your project. I'll assume there's no rules or limitations Along with the turbo; have you given any thought on finding a double overhead camshaft head that would work? (thinking more flow/more HP).

    Very cool, I'll be following along. Be glad to help; don't hesitate to send me a PM.

    I've got a vert cd175 parts bike missing carb pretty rough but I think the heads good and it has a title. I was thinking someday combining parts from this and a parts cb160 I got blah blah blah I might be willing to make a trade.
