the animal has a voice.
I love this project. You have, in my opinion, taken exactly the correct approach design-wise to this project. The sound of the finished engine is amazing and somewhat surprising. It has more of a vintage V8 automobile engine sound than a Harley. I'm looking forward to the continuation of this project.
something precious in this world
really fabulous work, beautiful engine. how will the engine be offered in the US so that the bike can be licensed? i guess it will have to go into an already licensed bullet 500 right? bet you'll sell a million of them to indians where emmissions laws are likely not as strict.
Hi Barney...yup, I think the simplest way would be to install it into an already registered Bullet. Also, looking at the large number of aftermarket Harley based V twin engines available for installation into custom frames, I'd say a kit-built bike would also be possible depending on laws in your particular state.
Interestingly, emission rules for bikes are far stricter in India than here in the USA. Also, any sort of frame or engine mods are illegal.
Still do consider coming out with mod kits for the Indian market.
