Engine Shop

Our work on cool engines, both classic and high performance.

This is the other Kuncklehead that Highway Choppers is working on.  The motor is done and now they are working on the chassis.

We did one final run-stand test before our customer picked up his Drake motor.  What made this run so special was the custom run-stand that was built by Highway Choppers specifically for this motor.  The customer plans to display it in his Harley Davidson dealership showroom in Pennsylvania.  This was a fun project for us and we are pleased that the customer was happy with it.

We have been working on Gov’s Drake Engine for about a year now.  It is finally complete.  You can see the initial run-stand video below.  As an added bonus we were fortunate enough to be able to interview Buzz Rose.  He is a former Drake engine-powered race car driver from the 50’s.  Enjoy!
