Mike Charlton is one step closer to completing his land speed–record motorcycle. The Ohio-based construction worker is hoping to shatter the current record by more than 150mph with the aid of a J-34 jet engine, homegrown ingenuity and a healthy disregard for his own wellbeing. The bodywork’s rough form has been completed, which helps make the bike look much more mobile. Even if Charlton doesn’t set a new record, at least he’ll look fast doing it.
