The March issue of the British magazine "Motorcycle Sports and Leisure" has an article about Matt Capri and his turbocharged Bonneville.  Matt and his crew, with Alan Cathcart, have been doing a lot of serious racing, and this bike has national records.  This is a big accomplishment.  It is very difficult to make one of these things go fast.  Sort of like teaching a hippo to fly.  It is a good article.

Cool story, thanks for posting it.  Sounds like he is one of the real privateers.

He's going to need a lot better bodywork if he is even going to get close to 200 mph with a 1350cc pushrod engine on gas.
