Re: The LocalRiders Harley Challenge

I'm not 100% certain this is a Harley, but I THINK it is.

I still have that same pic as well Whitttom, just couldn't figure out how to post it without a code.. Getting it running was easy, it rode ok. That Jardine exhaust was selling point when I sold it... LMAO

Took me a while to find it....

Harley-Davidson CAC Speedway Model 1934
The Harley-Davidson CAC 500cc single port speedway model is very rare and not much is really known about its history. One came up for auction in Las Vegas a few years ago and the owner talked about it to Rick Newlee. It appears that there were 12 of these machines built, the whereabouts of 9 of them is known but nobody is sure what happened to the other 3. It appears that H-D factory rider Joe Petrali was the man instrumental in getting these machines built. Joe had more or less begged Harley-Davidson to build the bikes, but they were not really interested. Joe hung around the H-D plant and pestered them until they gave in to Joe's wishes on the condition that he built it himself (or hired his own people). Other conditions were that he could only use the plant on weekends and he must leave the workshop in good clean order come Monday. He also had to put the Harley-Davidson name on the bike (just in case it became a success!). After a few of the CAC machines were built and tested, Joe tried to persuade Harley-Davidson to put the CAC machines into production for a second time, however the tests did not go as well as expected and the engines didn't make the power he had hoped for. It appears that Joe had copied the British J.A.P. engines to some degree, but had a problem with the cams and the cam timing. Harley-Davidson decided not to get involved and the project ended.
I'm glad you asked, because I didn't read it the first time I saw it. I think this qualifies as being cool, at least in my book.

Dave,
The wheels you posted are the original Skyway tuff wheels or tuff 1's
The ones used on the motorcycle appear to be the tuff 2's. They had a bigger hub in the center. Mine always broke around the bearing housing.

Re: The LocalRiders Harley Challenge

Here's a few I've always been fond of.
Two of the trikes may not be Harleys.

Re: The LocalRiders Harley Challenge

I have to admit I have always liked that Exile trike. Be better with a Ducati engine or TL or something, haha.

So is the Exile trike (which technically isn't a Harley, but close enough).

Re: The LocalRiders Harley Challenge

Nope, Exile bikes all look pretty buch alike, it's the black one with the scotch brite alluminum treatment.

A trike is hard 'nuff to steer, let alone with a 45 d. rake. I do think that one may of had a open diff., if not it would be a real turd or a ride.

I do like thier minimalist styling. IMHO.

Both the antiquish Sportster-based 'Tricycle' and the Exile trike with massive Formula-1 tires, each were on separate episodes of Biker Build Off.

It does indeed have an open diff, essentially hand built by Russell Mitchell himself. He was very much aware that without it, it would be impossible to turn.
