A new International speed record for three wheeled motorcycles was set Thursday at the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Piloted by renowned racer Bill Chambers out of Upland, CA, 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 featured the company’s colors of red, white, and black and used an unmodified Renegade conversion kit. The custom V-twin power plant was provided by engine developmental company Aces and Eights Racing from Deadwood, SD.

Bill Chambers (World Champion driver) says: “This 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.”

Ken Hines (President/CEO of Lehman Trikes) says: “I think it is important to note that this speed record was attained using an unmodified Renegade conversion kit. This product is exactly what our customers purchase from their Lehman Trikes Dealer. As the Leader of the Three World, it is only right that Lehman establish the first international speed record for trikes.”
