[QUOTE=Black_Moons;246889]I think it would be intresting to have a realistic consumer limit, Like, Under $1000 'stock' Frame being used.QUOTE]

I can always raise the price of my "stock" frame to meet this requirement. In all serious, though, safety is the key. Tires will be a real issue here. I have found some good ones but nothing with any real speed rating. If over 60 mph requires speed rated tires this may be an issue. I would imagine that a properly tuned Morini with tall gears and Bairdco hanging on to the handlebars will reach 60 mph on the salt. Watchout world, here comes the "Bairdco Special"!
