About the Custom Build

 

The Mid Life Cycles entry in the Busted Knuckles Build-Off was inspired by the land-speed record bikes of the early and mid-20th Century and the resurgence in popularity of dry lake racing in recent years. This renewed interest in land speed racing has resulted in record-setting Bonneville Salt Flats runs by Royal Enfield’s own highly-modified 650 Twin and hot competition each year among DLRA entrants at Lake Gairdner, several of them engineered by Hallam Racing Australia. These speed racers (and memories of Burt Munro) were the  inspiration that led us to create “Sabre”, a salt racer based on the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Twin.

 

 

Builder Profile

 

Mid Life Cycles’ Brass Rajah build gained global recognition, but what should we do for the 2019 Busted Knuckles  build-off? Inspiration came from Hallam Racing’s stunning Harley-engined Tomahawk salt racer and a record-setting Royal Enfield.
