    I am planing to build a special around a Victory 100 engine, and the rear pipe going back does not fit the look and having rear pegs as well as if both the exhausts excited from the front... partly for packaging, partly for the look, partly cos I can. :)

    That Egli frame your found is designed for a Japanese four engine, hence the front down tubes. The original Egli frame was built around a Vincent HRD 1000 V twin, which like the Victory engine is both 50 degrees V and a stressed frame member. ev img_0035.jpg

    Yeah, might even be getting the milling machine and lathe into action to lighten some of the engine parts that I can.... every bit counts!
    You are right.... a LOT of that junk can go in the bin! :)

    Will be fun to watch. I am curious how you earn your living, not many folks have machine shops at home.

    Yeah my father was a "fitter turner toolmaker" in a Naval dockyards here in New Zealand and I have inherited his workshop.... and I spend a lifetime learning from him. The workshop is still at my 84 year old mothers house so I get to use it and keep her company at the same time. Just a shame its a 4 hour drive away! I normally go for a few months at a time.

    @agusta74, as in MV Agusta? You also mentioned Moto Guzzi. Have you ever done any performance work on their 1400 models? The all black Eldorado is, IMHO, one of the most beautiful Moto Guzzi‘s ever produced. Sadly, factory and dealer support in the USA continues to be mostly awful with aftermarket support mostly non existent.

    There are a few European companies and one American company that do make performance products for these motorcycles. Though the cost of most of them is prohibitive.

    Some people complain about the cost and availability of products for our Victory Motorcycles. Compared to nearly anything Italian the cost of our parts is excellent.

    only older Guzzi's for me... my main ride is a Guzzi Nuovo Falcone 500 single. Yes I have had three MV's, I currently have one.

    Ok, from the positive responses I had had about it, this might be the place to start the build thread. :) I think I will start it in the Tech Q & A section as there in no project area as such... It will be a slow burn, with time in the workshop and of course money (or the lack of it) slows me down! I do almost everything myself which also slows down projects.

    The port locations on the Freedom V-twin are lessthan ideal for this endeavor.

    I think the TS 111 would be a better suited for this project.

    Good luck

    I had considered that engine, but I was not a fan of the fake side valve look....
