He is now gearing himself up for his second record attempt on the jet-powered bike he is building in his back garden shed.
He said: “It’s going to get a bit tight in the shed, I might have to build an extension, but I haven’t told the girlfriend yet.”
Mr Morris said he was first inspired to build vehicles with jet engines after watching an episode of Channel 4 show Scrapheap Challenge.
