One quick look at this 2-wheeled bad boy, and you’ll know something’s up – I mean it doesn’t have a head light for starters. And that’s for good reason. This Triumph Thruxton wasn’t built for cruising the streets, it’s a bike built for breaking records.

A few geniuses in the Melbourne area combined their talents in order to build a motorcycle worthy of setting a new DLRA land speed record at Lake Gardiner in South Australia. Equipped with a fully built 1000cc motor which includes high performance pistons and rods along with enlarged throttle bodies and a whole slew of other updates, the crew was able to take the standard 69 horsepower output generated from a 2009 Thruxton, and increase it to over 100 ponies. The team also threw on some race suspension and a lightweight carbon fiber body to boot. Did we mention the bike runs on straight alcohol? Because it does.
