Almost too pretty to run. But then again, so is the rest of the bike. Nice nice work.

Beautiful work, Alp!  Maybe when I'm FULLY RETIRED, I'll paint and polish my relic!

I don't know my Triumphs that well - - is this the Vintage class motor?  And what is the mechanism on the right side of the timing case?

That looks like a mechanical fuel pump, like a Top Fueler would have.  With an iron head and barrel, I would guess this is a Vintage class entry.

Justin just said it, it is the mechanical fuel pump with the main valve and high speed cut off valve. The engine is a Vintage class pre unit triumph with a iron cylinder head.
I would prefer my own design gravity feed set up which performed better than the pump setup but this bike's fuel tank is under the seat pan.

I LOVE blue bikes!!!

Check general rule 7.B.10, Wheels:

Faired or disc front wheels only allowed in side car and streamliner classes.
All other classes you have to see daylight through the wheel.

You might argue that your discs don't rotate?

How do you change gears and activate rear brake?

That is an amazingly beautiful bike. I assume it is a "kneeler" where your legs are kneeling all inside the body on those pads. But Patrick is right with both SCTA and AMA for APS bikes the rule is "A minimum of 180 continuous degrees shall be showing of the front wheel. It shall not be blocked by streamlining. There must be no streamlining forward of the leading edge of the front tire". I don't have an SCTA rule book but the AMA rules says "The front wheel shall not have wheel discs. Except for streamliners, where bodywork encloses the wheel, the front wheel must have cross-ventilation at a minimum of 25% of total wheel surface." Better check the rules unless you have discovered some loophole around that.

Speedweek was a test & tune event for our new bike. The new frame geometry/body design performed well, reached 170mph, got into high speed wobbles few times (due to ruts and soft spots) fortunately saved and proved stable. Fastest average speed within the measured mile was around 150+ The best news is the new partial streamline bike design passed safety and class compliance inspection. We will need better salt/conditions to go faster..

Alp, met you and Jameika (hope I spelled that right) in the 6 parking lot during engine rebuild.  Very well made bike for those that did not get to see it. 
Looking forward to your continued success  cheers
