Not one of the usual Harley engines we build here, but hey – everyone needs a weekend project
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!
