Love the ole knuckles!!


If you can’t score a 61 cubic inch, 4-speed transmission original Harley Knucklehead and/or want the style of the past but in a powerful trouble-free 93 cubic powerplant, chances are you going to order a modern Knuckle engine from S&S Cycle that you can still couple to an original Harley tranny from those times. It’s what did Johann at Bike Farm Germany (http://www.bike-farm.de/).

Very cool. Whole bike is a work of art. Like the twisted steel!

I love the twisted steel as well. It's an art form of heat, sweat, and time.

thought about doing something different for my Knuckle project. Like a Cafe Knuck.

But I just picked up a set of 42 fenders and saddlebags. Now thinking about building it to look more original.

Make a thread man. We would like to see it.

I will when there is finally something to see. Just a pile of parts right now.

The Panhead made the Sept #112 issue of The Horse Backstreet Chopper(page 70)

I don't get the mag... A pile parts is still worth looking at and helps the rest of us appreciate the work during the process.
