Thread: Replica Knuckleheads

  1. Replica Knuckleheads

    Hi Gang,

    While browsing various sites and forums, I've been reading as much as I can about new replica knucklehead motors.

    I'm wondering if anyone has any real EXPERIENCE with either the V-Twin or S&S/Flathead Power motors. I read constantly people saying they've "heard" this motor or that was "crap" or "excellent". But few actually seem to know first-hand- i.e. own and ride or have actually worked on 'em- either of 'em.

    Its hard to weed out the second-hand rumors from the real facts about these motors.

    As I said earlier, my dream bike is a knucklehead and new is the way I want to got but can't find concrete info.

    Any insight is appreciated!

    Clint

    I have not heard or ridden one, but have found in the past just about everything I have used from S&S is pretty top notch. I have seen their replica Harley knucklehead bike but not yet ridden one.

    I own one of the earlier Knucklehead Power bikes (2000), it's in the shop now, being completely rebuilt, I wish I'd just bought an original, which I have done now, instead. I hope that S&S does a better job on them, but they have not really stepped up to the plate to help me out with the one I have.....

    When S&S purchased FHP, they did not buy into FHP's previous warranties. Those warranties are the responsibility of the previous owners. Paps

    Let's hope that the people who bought, Saturn, and Hummer and the other labels stand behind their products better.

    S&S did not by the company, Flathead Power. They only bought their assets. That is not the same thing as China buying the Hummer line.Kinda like ole Tedd at V-Twin buying names like Sifton, Gary Bang, and The Motor Shop. All he got was the name. Too bad he didn't buy the quality.
