    :p I really love these bikes, very unusual, thanks for sharing.
    I remember having saw a Harley engined with a Vtwin coming from a Rolls-Royce V12 taken from a RAF 4 engined bomber, can't remember which one.
    I'll try to find it back to show you.

    Sweet looking rides, wonder how fast they would go, though you may run out of gas long before you hit top speed.

    Can't find back the magazine with the picture but not sure it was a Harley now after seeing this : Lucky Keizer's big twin
    In my memory it was a 1100 cafe racer based bike, quit similar ... but I remember a secondary belt transmission ... not sure.
    In the original cliche the monster was presented in front of a black under surfaces painted Lancaster (City of Glasgow ?), that's why I talked about a 4 engine. Very impressive combination.
    I found this while searching ! Leonhardt 410 Cubic Inch V-Twin Motorcycle - The Kneeslider
    410 cubic inch Vtwin, Boeing tyres ...
    Where is the kick ? Eh eh.

    Crazy, those with the engine mounted as if in a plane would be terrible to ride with all that rotation going to the side...
