Thanks and you're welcome. I owned this model engine (not the drag bike). It was conceived by Nostalgia Cycle in Huntington Beach, CA. Too bad these asswipes made it as it was one of the worst assembled engines ever. They were only in it for the money ($4000 per engine) and didn't give a rat's ass that it was machined and assembled by idiots and they had the nerve to blame the customers for all the problems. It was great on paper and the attraction was that it used all GM internals like valves, bearings, pistons etc. and had a 4 lobe cam. It was a 90* motor and almost 100 cubic inches. Mine was such a nightmare but I was determined to make it work and spent a couple years getting it right. I made some fairly long interstate trips on it until the main bearing went and I was tapped out for money and sold it to a guy in Indiana. He rode it for a while and it's now in someone else's hands. You can go to Facebook to the 'Super Vee Owner's Group' to check them out.

That motor sounds like real trouble even though you got it to a stage where it seemed right.It can always be a worry when you raise the CI's in a motor and if it isn't done right using strong parts by someone that knows exactly what theyre doing then you're in for problems.I'm sure I've heard of Nostalgia Cycle before?

A mate of mine had a 100 ci shovel too but through regular troubles upgraded to a later model EVO,he's had it for almost 10 years now with little to no trouble and he tours a few times a year.The bloke that bought his old shovel took it on a run with a few others last year but she broke down.

Another friend runs a '72 FLH which has been chopped with the motor being "warm to hot" and it's still going strong.
