  1. A new international speed record for three-wheeled motorcycles was set this week by a Lehman trike at the Bonneville Salt Flats. The trike was unmodified save for a custom power plant, according to Lehman officials.

    Piloted by racer Bill Chambers of Upland, Calif., the specially prepared Lehman Renegade reached a top speed of 123.404 miles per hour. The certified two-pass average over the course was 121.672, setting a new international record for the class.

    The trike (see photo) used an unmodified Renegade conversion kit; however, it employed a custom V-twin power plant provided by engine developmental company Aces and Eights Racing from Deadwood, S.D.

    “I think it is important to note that this speed record was attained using an unmodified Renegade conversion kit,” stated Ken Hines, president and CEO of Lehman Trikes. “This product is exactly what our customers purchase from their Lehman Trikes dealer.”

    Racer Chambers said that the achievement at Bonneville “was one of the greatest highlights of my racing career. The Lehman Trike design is amazing in its stability and handling. I look forward to returning to the Salt Flats next year and bettering the international record.”
