Lehman Trike Sets World Land Speed Record In Bonneville

Lehman Trikes owns a new Land Speed Record with a required two-pass certified average speed of 121.672 mph. Top speed reached on one pass was 123.404 mph. It was piloted by racer Bill Chambers who declared being amazed by the trike chassis stability during his 2 runs. “I think it is important to note that this speed record was attained using an unmodified Renegade conversion kit,” stated Ken Hines, President / CEO of Lehman Trikes. “This product is exactly what our customers purchase from their Lehman Trikes Dealer. As a matter of fact, although mostly unmodified, Lehman’s engine was “massaged” by Eights Racing from Deadwood, South Dakota,

    Impressive, especially when considering it is a wide and heavy vehicle with little modification.
    Kudos indeed!

    Ken Hines way to go. That is impressive. However it is less impressive that I cannot get a Lehman trike coversion kit for my’96 Road King sitting in my garage. Just don’t make them unless your a ’97 or newer. Crap on that.

    Looks like I will have to give my business to “Champion” Ken whom are happy to accomodate me this winter.

    Kudos to Lehman,,,, I’d like to see one of those Boss Hoss trikes tackle tha’ salt… Surprised Lehman stuck with a batwing fairing, though… One of those “bullet” type fairings may have done a better job of splittin’ tha’ air. =) Regardless, that’s a bas a$$ trike. Respects

    That takes some stones. I have never had the pleasure riding a Lehman built trike but the others that I have ridden (I won’t name names) never exhumed the confidence in me to go more than 40 or 50 mph. Glad to see the there is a company out there willing to put their “feet to the fire” in this economy and prove that technology can be remastered and laurels are net meant to be rested on. My only gripe is that the bike is obviously not one of HD’s newer chassis as evident by the 1984-99 single piston calipers. I guess that Lehman is trying to prove that not only can their bikes go fast…they aren’t in any hurry to stop! Good job!

    Lehman was started in Westlock Alberta Canada

    Getting old. Saw a v-Rod conversion on a run. Maybe Harley could improve the looks of its non-seller.
    Bike performed well and being liquid cooled might be the way to go. A displacment boost would help. Bumping up a v-rod is a very expensive operation that only weisco and Zippers do.
    Factory could do it for much less.

    Bigwoody…have you ever rode a V-Rod? They don’t need “bumped up”.
