    Thumbs up A knuckle chop to die for

    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.

    Builder: Bike Farm, Melle. Germany. Bike Name: To Die For. Builder Name: Johann. Owner: Gerd Remmert. Frame: HD Wishbone 1949. Rake: OEM Stretch OEM. Engine Make / Size: S&S 93″ Knuckle Style. Front End: Bike Farm Twisted Springer. Drivetrain: HD/BDL. BDL 2″ primary drive. Wheels: Front 80 Twisted Spokes 2.1 5x 21″, Rear 80 Twisted Spokes 4.50 x 16″. Tires: Front, Metzeler Whitewall MH90, Rear Classic Whitewall 5.10. Brakes: Front. W&W Disc, Rear. Kustom Tech Drum. Painter: Alex Henkemeier – Germany. Chroming / Plating: Andreas Lange – Germany.

    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.

    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.
