Ron’s 1936 Steve McQueen VLH–Completed

Ron’s 1936 VLH Steve McQueen bike is finally complete.  It came to us needing engine, transmission, and chassis work.  After rebuilding the engine, we ran it on our run-stand as you can see in previous posts here and here.  Now it is all together and running down the road.  We are putting a few miles on it before Ron picks it up.  We think he will be pleased with the results.

We are continuing to work on Ron’s 1936 VLH and we now have the engine completed.  The pictures and video below are from the first new engine start-up on our engine stand.

Ron bought this 1936 VLH at the Steve McQueen auction in Las Vegas and has been trying to put it together.  He brought it to us to finish a few things, and we found some problems with the motor.  So, we pulled the engine out and found that it needed to be rebuilt completely.  These are some of the process pictures up to this point.  It is currently on the bench for final assembly.
