Harley Davidson WLC time-lapse restoration
We had located this Harley Davidson WLC in Europe - it was barely running
and whoever had tried to restore or maintain it had done a pretty poor job.
Nearly every part and component was incorrect and only seemed to get worse
the more we took it to pieces. However as you will see, with our depth of
knowledge and expertise we were able to restore and refurbish the bike and
rebuild the engine and gearbox back to the highest standard.
We had already sold the bike before we commenced the restoration, so when
it was finished we then dressed it as per our clients requirements.
We chose this restoration as our first time-lapse project as we knew that
the time to complete the job was the shortest. The filming took place over
the period of about 1 month in the Autumn of 2013 at our workshop in West

1940 HARLEY DAVIDSON MODEL 45 COLD START
This is a cold start of a 1940 Harley model 45. At first there wasn't
enough fuel to start it, but after putting some more fuel in it started
right up. It didn't run great, probably needed the filters cleaned and it
is 70 years old.
MUST HEAR engine sound Pre War Nitro burning flathead 1932 AV8 Ford hot rod race car
This roadster was originally built in 1937 by Sandy Belond and Sam Hanks to
race on the SoCal dry lakes. My friends always kid me saying it isn't
authentic until you run like he did on nitro; Cheers guys, 58% Methanol 20%
Nitro 20% Gas 2% castro oil. This fuel made it possible for Belond to run
125.854 mph in 1942 at a REVS meet held at Muroc; argueably the fastest
speed ever by a pre-war hot rod roadster.
1946 Harley Davidson Knucklehead COLD START
This 1946 Knucklehead Bobber is a cool bike. The correct starting procedure
is used to start a very cold bike. The machine does not catch on the first
ignition kick but follows through on the 3rd ignition kick ands idles right
out. Out the driveway and down the street, this bad boy wants to run!

Flathead Ford Engine Start Up
we found this in a field. we kept the stock crank, rods, and pistons. this
has new valves and guides. new crane cam, and aftermarket edelbrock heads,
with fenton duel 2x2 intake with a pair of rebuilt holley 94's. i added
headers with harley davidson mufflers, and a high torque mini starter. ive
had some of my friends laugh at my color scheme, they thought it should be
in a circus. a girl on a facebook page thought it was a spaceship so we
launched it today.
