Harley with a Chevy Corvair engine is a Kick

A Harley without an engine and an air cooled corvair engine. Could I make them fit together? I built this one of a kind motorcycle over 15 years ago. It is a kick start only and still runs great.

Mid-Engine Crown Corvair: Porsche Cayman Fighter - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Chuck Rust Wouldn't it have been great if the United States had one truly great mid-engine sports car? I mean yes, there was the Ford GT40, Ford GT and of course the Pontiac Fiero (that sucked though), but just imagine if American manufacturers really had their act together and created something awesome. Chuck Rust, the owner of this 1965 Corvair Crown V8, knew that the little Chevy had great potential and that with A LOT of work (and some ingenuity), it could be turn into something outstanding. This car is about fun, performance and proving people wrong. It sounds outstanding, has some of the best lines out there, and thanks to a little funky paint and graphic work from its' owner, has a presence that few cars can match. One of the most well balanced performers we've ever driven, this Corvair Crown had us grinning from ear to ear from the first moment we turned the key.

UNSAFE AT ANY SPEED?
A couple of interviews with Corvair owners at the South 71 Cruiser's Cruise Night event this month. Lots of other cars there, but the Corvairs seemed like an interesting topic to record.

Scale Running Model Harley Panhead Engine by Ron Colonna
V-Twin Panhead Ignition: Spark Bore: 1 5/16 in. Stroke: 1 1/2 in. Two Cylinder Four Cycle No Castings Used This engine was scratch built to a scale of 2/5ths or 40% of full size. The bottom end was taken from a drawing of a Knuckelhead engine that I puchased on e-bay. The top end was patterned after photos taken from e-bay of Harley parts for sale. I also bought a Harley repair manual that helped with the oil system. The crankcase was split into three sections instead of the usual two for ease of machining. The ignition is solid state and I use a GM coil which fires the two plugs simultaneously. Timing is advanced and retarded with the timer body. Two rotating magnets fire a Hall effect device at the proper times as per full sized points. The engine is large enough to produce that lovely V-twin sound.
