147" Renegade Engine

Post by neville » Tue Jan 31, 2012 1:36 pm

The engine comes polished with a 48mm Mikuni Carb plus coils and fuel pump never been used. Bought with the intention on doing my own custom chopper build but bought a house and wont have time, great package will make an insanely powerful chopper.

Must sell $14000 ONO
Can email pictures as i couldnt get them to upload.

Polished motors don't cool correctly, dept of trans are lookin at limiting all v twins to 117 cubes maximum, why does it need a fuel pump ? Sounds like one hell of an expensive anchor :mrgreen:

Here is a pic that I took at the Gold Coast MotorCycle Expo some years ago.

Impressive motor, if this is the one that he has?

Stoopid qeaustion with a motor of that size and capacity would you have to have a certian frame to take the extra torque and size?.

My main question before buying would be parts availability and expertise on this brand and model of motor.

Definitely need a tall frame... How well made are they... the local HD rebuilding expert reckons he's pulled a apart a few of the popular aftermarket motors and they are very poorly put together and in performance don't live up any where near expectations.

I am with your local guy, pulled a part a new revtech 6 speed tranny last week because it was binding, turns out it was missing a circlip on the countershaft that was making first rub on the shifter pawl (junk) pulled a siezed tranny out of an ironhead it was a V-twin mfg job missing the bearing between the mainshaft and the gear, the gear had been machined to fit the mainshaft got hot and high sided the rider. All this stuff is made in china to inferior specs and expectations, you get what you pay for !

Hey Neville... we're not trying to be critical of your motor... and I know nothing about this brand so maybe a hihgh quality manufacturer... just is a valuable discussion for all...maybe our comments would have been better in another forum. I'm sure someone willing to pay that this sort of money for this motor will already be clear on what they want. Is definitely a nice looking piece.
