And love that aluminum work too, a real craftsman did that - hand beaten the way it used to done over half a century ago by any one that wanted a non production custom shape.

I think the crankcase detailing would be most intriguing, noting it's a single crank design. Hmm, wonder how he did that, wider journals for two rods ? I imagine it's still a plain bearing design so I doubt that forked (or whatever term it is that Harley uses) rods have been used.

Thats beautiful!

Back in the late 80's Midget racing legend Mel Kenyon and his brother built a V-8 using the top ends from a couple of Suzuki 1100's with a block and crank of their own design. Mel won alot of races with that engine.

It would be really cool to see inside the engine.

Great link for the video - smoked a lot, he said paint from inside the exhaust, I dunno -

Sounded, well, I liked it A LOT

That was a lot of smoke from the inside of the exhaust for the paint on the outside to be causing, but I'd ride it anyway. It'd be nice to see dyno numbers from the thing.

Agreed, rings or valve guides - or, oil leak into the intake, who knows.

I'd ride it too, you know it would lite that rear tire up like nobodies business.

Dyno would be interesting, seems to be an easy 200hp

and smooth

Aye; there's the rub! He got enough room for the pair of rods by thinning the crank webs, seemingly to practically nothing. A dyno run would almost certainly fracture the crank and convert it to a really trick base for a coffee table. The CBX motor doesn't take at all kindly to large increases in power as several turbo'd ones that sent pieces of crankshaft all over the road indicate.

Love the work he has done, but from a longevity point of view ... still, I'd love to ride it!

Rob

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

V6 Ferrari Dino powered bike. Blown. Andreas built his own blower. Had to re-do the impeller tips a few times until he found the right material that would seal and not expand too much with heat. I've ridden it. It's scary riding a bike that powerful, geared for 100+ mph in first gear, and you can not place a value on it because he will not sell it. Easy to ride and comfortable. Lot's of torque way down low.

Press Any Key To Continue.

Expensive, but pretty spot on the back of a slow box van.

I had two CBXs years ago ...a modified one with a 6-1 and braced/gusseted frame . Less ground clearance than a Lamborghini ! I also had a stock silver 79' one (sounded silky smooth ...like a Porsche 911 !!) . They are awsome bikes ...but f-in heavy ...and the brakes suck ! Though I like what this guy has done to the bike .
