Safety fast

A no compromise approach

The safety of the both the driver and the bike have played a very important part in the design of the Angelic Bulldog streamliner. In order to break the land speed record we need a very fast motorbike and to comply with the various technical regulations governing the construction of such machines.

To run at Bonneville for instance, the streamliner will need to pass the rigorous scrutineering process. Elsewhere an official seal of approval will not be needed, but the same rigorous standards will still apply. There’s too much at stake not too…

Engineering considerations

The streamliner will have the following:

Roll cage made of T45 tubing, 3.2mm thick
Bodywork made of carbon/kevlar mix
Two six-pot callipers and 10mm thick discs, water cooled
2 chutes for high speed
Watercooled chains running in a neoprene tunnel, either side of the rear wheel
A fire system in both the engine and cockpit compartments
A tilt mechanism to deploy both chutes if the streamliner goes over 40 degrees from vertical
