sav c90 specials

my back ground is I work for Airbus on the A4oom project..working in the ultrasonic department checking carbon fibre structures...I intend to modify my c90 / c70 motorbike to acheive 100 mph and 200 mpg..
I have recently completed a c90 off road trail riding bike..it works really well with no modifications to the engine...just a standard engine in a modified motorcross frame..weighs about 75 kilos..not fast but its not suppose to be ..
I want to make a fully streamlined kneeler type motorbike for comuting..
really interested in any thing similar

all my friends are very doubtful I would like to prove a point.

Manufacturing Engineering Specialist for an extremely large equipment company at their nine to thirty two liter engine block and cylinder head machining plants. Basically that's a fancy title for an entry level position in the Engineering department. I have worked here for three years and have worked my way up through five positions starting as machine operator. My goal is , God willing, to be an Engineer in three years.
