British man sets new cycling speed record of more than 174 mph

Architect Neil Campbell, a 45-year old, has set a new cycling speed record of more than 174mph on a 15,000 Pound custom made bike from the back of a Porsche as it hurtled down a runway. Campbell broke the previous record of 167mph, which was achieved by a Dutch rider in 1995, using an elongated, custom bike based on a design of a tandem. The cycle was built using 3D-printed components and parts from a motocross bike.
