my buddy has one of these. i did some research for him........they are a strong motor if you can get them running. he has nothing but trouble with his. he put compression releases on it, numerous chrysler town and country starters, fouls plugs all the time, very unbalanced motor. he is trtying to sell it now. he never really even rode it. breaks down every time he tries to. my advice would be to stay away.rustyparts said:
Thats kind of why i was asking because I remember that bike in the mag but didn't know what became of it.flattracklarry said:Cycle. It was a neat concept to use Chevy engine parts, but nothing but trouble. The woes of one Supervee builder, Red, were chronicled in Iron Horse several years ago. Red sold the bike and I saw it at the Wauseon vintage meet a few years ago. The new owner was riding it and it sounded pretty damned good (sort of like a hopped-up sportster). But it was leaking a lot of oil. I've got a picture of it somewhere. I'll post if I can find it.
... Generation 1 Super Vee...1985....HD Evo start...1985? But my point really was this...why not just build a great shovel (or Evo) and be done with it...I understand the theory behind it; but all I ever heard in reality that it was a scam.....plus, its ugly as hell... even if it DID run.....Creepinogie said:It was a good idea at the time to make an easily servicable engine using parts that you could get anywhere. Problem was they weren't developed properly and had shit quality control out the door. They didin't have crate evo motors when they started making the super V.
