The VELOCIRAPTOR SPEEDBIKE
My goal is to build a bicycle and race it for the world record which is currently set at 81 miles per hour.

UPDATE FEBRUARY 2006
The build is on and the offical dates for the challenge for 2006 have been set. The parts for the build hhave all arrived and I will be constantly updating the 2006 Bike pages to keep everybody informed of the progress. I have also started shooting video of the build. These clips will be put into a build montage later. I am also putting extra photos not seen in the build diary into the Chemical Valley Gallery. These photos will provide differnt views of the bike.

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2005
I want to announce that the Velociraptor will not be attending the 2005 Human Speed Challenge at Battle Mountain, Nevada in October. My thanks goes out to all who have helped and participated in this years effort. Construction, testing and imrovements will continue over the fall months so that the bike can actually participate on tracks in early spring. I doubt I will be able to make it to the Challenge this year as a spectator to help and participate in race set-up so I want to tell all of the racers good luck and go fast.
