The KOLB 125cc LSR 2013 Edition.

Although I’ve had a dream to race at Bonneville ever since reading about the Blue Flame Rocket Car  when I was  kid in the 70’s it wasn’t until my friend Scott Kolb built a 125cc partial streamliner and started racing it there that I realized now was the time and that I had to get my own wheels on the salt. I first start working on Scott's team in 2009 with my first trip to Bonneville in 2010. In 2010 we set the record for our class and this year we are returning to not only defend that record, but apply what we have learned in the wind tunnel and with a new, more powerful motor and far improved suspension to try to up out record significantly. Bub speed week starts the 24th of August this year which is 3 days as I write this. Here are a few pictures of the bike in Scott's shop taken about 3 weeks ago as we scramble to get it finished and on to the truck for the trip to Utah. Looking at these pictures you can see where I got a lot of the inspiration for my bike.
