Over the past few months a hotted up motor has been built for my Sportster Cafe Racer, by the man who built the bike in the first place, Kevin Dunworth of Loaded Gun Customs in Delaware. The motor is from a 1998 Buell Cyclone. It will fit straight into the 1987 Sportster frame of my Cafe Racer as the early Buell motors were based on Sportster 1200 engines. However, this motor has a 1275cc kit from Hammer Performance in Idaho (Google them ... they do amazing work), Thunderstorm heads with larger valves and a hot cam. It will be running a Mikuni HS42 carb and Dyna twin coil ignition. I'm hoping to get 100 rwhp when its properly dialled in on the dyno. The motor is now all assembled and powder coated and will soon be test fired. Once that's all done, it will commence the long journey to Aus ... overland from Delaware to California and from there by sea to Melbourne and then by road to Canberra. I was hopeful of getting the motor installed and the bike sorted in time for "Throttleroll 2018" ... a custom bike show held in Sydney every year. However, I don't think I will make it on time. Maybe next year.
