SOLD: Shelbourne F2 Suzuki K5 Powered Record Holder

The Team Johnny Killmore Shelbourne F2 is for sale. It has just over one year and only five race meets under its belt since having a ground-up rebuild by Fran Hall of Superlite Cars of Fraser, Michigan. During the build:

  • the fuel tank was cleaned and en entire fuel system was built with an external pump and regulator.
  • Left-foot shift conversion.
  • Front brake is currently separate from the rear/chair, using a 19mm Brembo master cylinder.
  • 2005 Suzuki GSX-R1000 power. Two full seasons previously before installing in this outfit. Compression showed 160psi across.

Most recent race meet was the 2016 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, which the outfit won and set the record for the sidecar class. Avon tires were brand new before the meet. A brand new rear tire is included also.

The bike has placed 1st or 2nd in each of the five races we’ve entered it in this season. In 2015 we were off the podium in our first race, then took a double win followed by two solid 2nd place finishes with a first-time passenger.

The machine is fun, fast, and stable. It is very chair-flat in lefts, does not bump-steer on the brakes, and the heavy steering does not require a damper.
