S&S Cycle New Bonneville Speed Record By Jeff Bailey

S&S Cycle® announces a new Bonneville speed record set by S&S Engineering Manager Jeff Bailey during the week of September 11-15, 2007. Using an S&S SB100 in a 1999 Buell® X1 chassis, Bailey made runs that averaged 172.591mph establishing a new record in the APS/PG-1650 class. The engine in Bailey’s bike is essentially all stock, having only benefited from extensive tuning and careful preparation. The bike was equipped with an XR750TT –replica front fairing and a tail section from famed light-weight body work manufacturer AirTech. The only other modifications to the bike came from an extended swing arm and Works Performance rear shock and adding 65 pounds of lead and steel for ballast to improve traction and stability.

    Bonneville Salt Flats is one of the most incredible places on this earth even more so given all the men and women who have run before us.
    Congratulations Jeff and thanks for your devotion to the X-Wedge engine project.
    Hope to see you on the salt mate
