    How much hp is your modded 6.5 HF motor putting out?

    I am not sure how much HP it is going to put out. It sure sounds nasty and just about jumped out of the frame when I test ran it the other night. It sure is an impressive motor that’s for sure.

    AGK may have a better answer since I have used him as a source for my parts.

    I will call and find out the estimated power that motor is going to put out and get back to you.

    I must apologize about my lack of response to you; it was rude and won’t happen again. Let me know if I can help with anything if it’s not too late.

    I have been busy with work and entertaining two teen age boys so this bike is going slow.

    I had some friends show up the other day and talked me into starting motor up; I did not have the drive chain tight and the motor throttle cable was a little short which held the carb open which resulted in the motor and drive chain getting out of control. Caused a bit of damage and destroyed the brake arm and chain. Repaired the cable and got the motor to idle real nice.

    This is the tank I made for the bike. This is the first time I have welded aluminum since 1981 which at that time it was in trade school. I really like the way it welds and looks; this will be my choice for tanks from now on.

    The only hold up is the front brake caliper that hits the 11gauge spokes, and no I will not change the spokes to 12…I am determined to overcome this issue…
    Venice Motor Bikes is also working on a brake setup to help out.

    I had something almost like that in mind, but steel. I have no tig. Only cheap flux core.

    Looks great.

    I got some more work done on the beast.. I mean bike. I had some friends back at the pad tonight and they talked me into starting it up again…it’s now become entertainment for us…the bike was ready for a test ride. All I can say is wow…

    Thumper is the only way…or should I say new way to go.

    I had one of those wide axles you are using but it bent. I thought it was pretty cheap. It bend right at the slot where the sprocket sits. If you want something better you might consider Sick Bike Parts. Sick Bike Parts
