Being a Harley guy, had to try my hand at a wood model of the V twin engine. The final product is the picture with 3 engines. The 2 singles were the original prototype. I paid more attention to detail and use of types of wood on the final design. Final product utilized maple, oak, black walnut and poplar.

Very Cool! Not personally a Harley guy myself but love the history that goes along with them. I have some buddies that would really appreciate these!

You did a wonderful job on these engines. Considering how nicely you have done these I would love to see you do a complete Harley Davidson. It would be a big challenge I suppose but I bet that you would enjoy it.
