This motor came to us a couple of years ago and the customer, who is from Alaska, wanted to rebuild just the lower-end. After completing the lower-end, the customer took it home and installed the heads. Several years later, after completing the motor, he called to request that we do a motor start-up on our motor run stand. He was happy that it went well.
Here is the new motor start-up for Rick’s Panhead. It was a complete engine rebuild.
This was the initial engine start-up for Scott’s Panhead. We have already rebuilt the transmission. The original rigid frame has been “old-school” molded with all the original tabs on it and painted bright orange. This will be a complete old-school chopper build in the end. We will continue to post updates. Stay tuned. But for now, enjoy the run video.
This bike was brought to us as a Pan/Shovel. The customer wanted to convert it back to a Panhead engine. We pulled the engine and completely balanced and blueprinted it with a Panhead topend instead of a Shovelhead. After running it on the run-stand and making sure everything was in working order, we installed it back into the chassie.
