I need inspiration for the Knucklehead I was going to built, then going to sell, now want to build again.

I always pictured it similar to Chet Herberts "The Beast" drag bike from 1950. But I can't find any pictures of it.

If you have any I'd love to see 'em.

Caffeine, thats the bike I was thinking of. I didn't realize it was built with a WL frame...I like it. I wonder what it takes to stick a Knuckle and four speed in one?

Thanks - Jeff

It is real simple to use a wl frame for installing big twin power into a single down tube harley frame. You sell it for good money and buy a VL frame.
