Effing A it's fast!  A gent on the land speed forum shared it with me.  He was right, it definitely gives me some inspiration in knowing that this CAN be done!  That crankcase is so tiny compared to the speed that the bike achieved.

The advantage of the blower is that it can keep the torque at max, all the way up to the redline. It doesn't decline in torque as it approaches redline like the N/A engines do.
It can make a lot of power that way.

It would have been better if it actually showed the bike going thru the speed traps.

My Royal Enfield can putt off into the distance as fast as the Velocette in the video. :)

+1 on that. Also, For a motor that is worked to the hilt, it really doesn't sound a whole lot different than a stock one. I would really like to hear it at full chat.
