I am looking for someone building one of these. I would like to see my Harley engine in one. And would be interested in cutting someone a deal. If they are interested.

Hi Guys

Just wondering:

What's the weight of a Harley engine?

(If I remember correctly my Jabiru 3300 air-cooled flat 6 weights 83 kgs dry)

Two other things that come to my mind immediately are:

 - vibrations


 - building an engine mount

Are there actually homebuild/experimental aircraft flying with Hog engines??
