Denise Mueller-Korenek 183.9 mph on a Bike

posted by hooker - 

So, how do you build a bike that can go over 180 mph? Given the stresses that come with rolling at 183.93 mph, the engineers started their project with the tire. It is an IRC model designed for dragster scooters in Thailand, they shaved down to make sure it was perfectly round to prevent speed wobble.

Mueller drafted a top-fuel dragster with a custom fairing and used a tow in to get up to 90 mph as there would be no way to turn her bike’s huge gear from a standstill. Once up to speed, she pedaled for more than for a minute in the draft of the specially designed vehicle to set the record. Mueller used a camera to communicate with her driver, which is vital because coming out of that tiny pocket of draft, just under four feet wide, would be fatal at these increasing speeds.
