In that article, it is shown with UCE top ends and EFI.
Two Ace GT heads would go right on it. That would give 65 hp at the rear wheel, right off the bat.

From the article:

Quote
The air-cooled, carburetted 55-degree V-twin engine was made available for purchase to existing previous-model owners and others for display purposes on Tuesday at an ex-factory price of Rs 4.96 lakh (engine only). The fuel-injected version of the engine will be BS-IV compliant and will make its debut alongside the new Carberry motorcycle.

Meanwhile, I am pleased to see that they are finally making quite a neat job of the modified frame, previous stretched Bullet frames on various after-market vee-twin conversions have never really looked quite right, IMHO.

I'm quite impressed with the layout of the new frame as well. I would sure love to pour over
the exploded views of the motor and see how well they thought things out.
Knowing the grades of metals used in these helps a fair tad as well. (A low quality plastic oil pump drive gear would make me arse pucker!) :o

I sure wish Carberry well in this venture, as they be on the right track thus far. :)
Nothing better than a nice putt on an RE.

What's wrong with a Norton gas tank on a Norton frame?


A.

Nothing. Its just a personal preference.

A 1,000cc is a bit anaemic really. Last weekend I went to Brackley for the annual parade at which the roads are closed for the day and classic racing bikes like MV 3s and 4s, Honda 4s and 6s, Gileras etc are ridden round the track on open pipes (which they can't do at anyUK race track because of noise limits). Anyway, Allen Millyard was riding his 4.9 litre V Twin, that he made in his garage from two cylinders of a Pratt and Witney radial aero engine. He was riding round with the 4 and 5 cylinder Kawasakis he also made from the three pot two strokers. He's made several other one-offs too - worth googling Flying Millyard. His V Twin is amazing and sounded lovely - he even made the carbs, numbering them 589 in reference to the old 389 Amals. God knows how big the inlet bores are...

A truly talented man.

Milliard's work is beautiful stuff, but back in '82 , an engineer from Oz built a
mean assed unit based on a Merlin aero engine. Lucky Keizer's creation put out
around 500 HP and could better 200 mph.

Both uber twins are cool, but I'd really be most happy with the new Carberry
unit. If I scored a lottery win, well fook, let the buying begin. ;)

I'm really impressed by the Milliard 100 SS that he built. It would be a great
little ride for my area.

I like the musket case a lot but would it work with the UCE heads, pistons and barrels?

Should I ever built a v-twin bike I want atleast 70hp out of it, that would be what one gets out of the stock uce top end.

My recently acquired H-D Sportster 1200 is only rated at 66 hp. My Kawasaki Vulcan 750 is rated at 68 hp. The Vulcan engine is more akin to a Ducati than a Harley. How much power can a RE bottom end handle and for how long?

  Is it even an RE Bottom end ?   The case isn't .
