Thought I'd say hello, I'm building a 100cc classic bike to hopefully take to Bonneville either 2020 or 2021.
I broke a world water speed record at Coniston last year. Are there any pages on this forum with info on shipping bikes from the UK to Bonneville?

First... Which one is the fastest... the boat or the bike?

and welcome

There are quite a few threads that talk about shipping... use the search function.  There has been multiple bikes shipped from England... half a dozen in one container... there is a thread about their journey.

So far the boat is faster, the bike hasn't even run yet! Record speed is 70.10mph in the boat, 74.9mph top speed but it's an average of two runs, one each way. Still going for more in the boat too, maybe next year I'll go for the water and land speed records.
Thanks  8-)
Had a look through the forum using the search but haven't found any current threads, will keep looking. Might start a thread about my own bike, only just started work on it

Hi Roflhat, i shipped my own bike from the Uk to Bonneville this year, and encountered many many pitfalls that i can warn you about, although worried your classic 100cc might be up against my own record!!  :-D, Pm me and i'll help all i can, cheers Ian
