From the family based company that brought you the first World’s Fastest Bagger back in 2006, comes a speed trike partnership based on a Triumph Rocket III Touring bike, a Carpenter Racing motor kit, and a Motor Trike conversion. This combination was powerful enough to post a 136 mph top speed and FIM World Record (pending ratification) at the recent Speed Trials by BUB at the world famous Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, Utah. Well known for his innovative parts and motorcycle designs, Brian Klock, Founder and President of Klock Werks, piloted this radical trike.
“The Triumph Rocket III is the ultimate trike motor as it sits. Then Carpenter Racing turned it into a 250 horsepower full blown hot rod,” states Brian Klock. “What an incredible experience! Motor Trike is the leader in independent suspension trikes so their future is bright. Their engineering team, in collaboration with Klock Werks, isn’t done yet! So many folks were cheering us on as we were escorted to impound after that first pass. Something about this powerhouse trike strikes a desire in people to want to ride it.”
With it’s amazing sound and classic look, even onlookers could relate to the trike and imagine themselves riding one of their own. “It’s one of the coolest trikes I’ve ever seen! I would actually ride that on the street,” stated one race participant while Team Klock Werks performed some “extreme product testing”.
Supported by Kicker, Pingel Enterprises, Metzeler, Parts Unlimited, Interstate Batteries, Saddlemen, Dynojet, Stratasys, Carpenter Racing, Truxedo, Gear Wrench, AMP Research and ARI- Klock Werks, Motor Trike and Triumph Motorcycles are proud to claim the fastest trike passes of the meet, and also claim the new FIM World Record for its class.
The Bonneville Salt Flats are near and dear to the Klock Werks team. Located in Mitchell, South Dakota, Klock Werks is the inventor of the original, patented Flare Windshield design, based on their salt flats land racing experiences. Since 2006, the Klock Werks team has set over 20 land speed records including a history making mother/daughter/daughter trio, another mother/daughter duo, and riders as young as 13 to name a few. Laura and Brian Klock were also married on the salt at the BUB event in 2007. Visit www.kustombaggers.com for more information.
