Impressive.

It would be nice to know a bit about whats hiding under the covers. Is that a supercharger under there, or a very long tube to the carb?

Not a turbo, I think. It looks to me like a roots blower, a mechanically driven supercharger.

I'd like to see the rest of your 216 photo's cool

PS:

The owner has a site dedicated to this bike, with a description of the engine etc, but with a non supercharged engine.

More pics here, with a supercharger:

Yes definitely a roots blower, (I know these things from the days when I was working on Fokker F27 aircraft) .
Interesting bike, I always loved the Velocette singles.
In this part of the world it is a not very well known fact that they have salt lake speed events in Australia too.
