If you bought Lance's bike you got a good one. Lance is a good friend and that bike is solid gold! Well put together.
It is a very well built bike. It is in my garage as of last night. Cant wait to be done with work so I can take it out tonight. Lance is a very cool guy. He was one of the best I have purchased anything from. I am hoping he can take a trip to Minneapolis and put some miles on. I will be talking to him today.
It is a Revtech in the black WASP bike. I should also state that this Revtech powered CFL was the ONLY bike to make the trip from the LBC to Sturgis with no mechanical failures. Jesse's Patrick Racing Engine pulled a rocker shaft bolt out, Larrys bike's mag failed and made most of the trip on the bumper of the truck and Dave's Pan needed a carb half way through the trip. I have been in the business for 9 years and I have never met a single person with a Revtech engine failure. I have heard stories...but never met a single person with a failure. Hope you are well.
Wow,.....Jason,......doing some "Not the Normal" thread reading, huh. You replied to a post I put up from March of 2011,.........
That's cool,.....I do the same thing some times. Anyway,....I only base my opinions on what I've heard and read. I'm not in the position to actualy own and test every engine out there,.....but the Gen 1 Rev Tech has the most negative reports that I've read. That's what my comment was based on.
Oh and,......while comparing Jesse's high end Partick Racing engine to the Rev Tech is a valid point,.........you thnk mentioniong Larry's and Dave's Pan Heads, with antiquated magneto and carb failures is? Kinda to be expected, no?
It should be noted,......those engines themselves, didn't fail either....just the accessories did.
As far as I know, my tank and the tank for the sturgis special were the only two sturgis special tanks Jesse ever built for shop built bikes. Or that's what Jesse told me back in late 2005 when I was having mine built.
