     Yeh, I got the bigger jug's, over a year ago ( mate & I got two sets together.

    got flat tops JE. I was going to use Red Shift 630/585 cams but too much trouble sending cams to be done.

    I just want torque not worried about what HP it makes. heads will be done in Australia. & Australian pipes ( proud to support Australians )

    a mate I respect, said your HP & Torque is not controlled by the cam, the Heads dictate how much HP you make. so worth thinking about.

    Who’s the Aussie bloke doing your heads? I could be interested in having some work done, sending stuff overseas is an expensive exercise in these financial times..

     Cow at L. A Cycles. he has done heads for me for years. 1st one an old Shovel thats still going strong ( with trips around tassie & up to bundy not long back ) plus she run's standing quarter in 11's. Cow did the heads built the motor. ( lasted me 30 years b4 sold it )

    then I got a new twin cam dyna ( carb model ) it was slower than my old shovel. it was an 88" model. Cow built that motor & did the heads I only had mild cams Andrews 55G & a CV carb Pipes made in Australia. it got me to 11.2's @ 121mph no wheelie bar no electric shift stock frame stock wheels. I road that bike Sydney to Willowbank to race & road home. that bikes still going strong too.

    he has all his own machines has what he thinks to be best equipment, has a DJ 250i a flow bench, engine building room. and has been building fast Harleys all his adult life. but sadly no web page, or fancy marketing or salesman ship.

    but web pages, salesmanship & marketing. don't make Harleys fast!

    they also map EFI & he can tune anything from a panhead, to a pump fuel Harley carb or EFI to a Nitro Burning Top Bike.

    Best workshop in Sydney by far without a doubt. All word of mouth.

    Just spare 2-3 hours if Cow starts talking to you haha. Lovely bloke though.

    Jimmy is also a gun tuner. Has a lot of runs on the board.

     yeh that's for sure!

    I have known Cow since 1980, alway good at what he did.

    I like that Brash!! Cow say's I can talk too.


    yeh Jimmy a good tunner EFI. funny story about Jimmy. took his EFI twin Cam softail to track one Wednesday night. I was there with my Carb twin cam dyna. we happened to be on the lights together ( on the track ) we went ou the hole. I missed a gear. Jimmy gets away I catch him at speed traps. in pits, Jimmy say's he has the bottom end I come on up high.

    then we are lined up again, this time, no mistakes, I hole shoot him & leave him. Jimmy says nothing. that week had to take my bike to Cow, I left it. I call into shop and Jimmy has my bike on Dyno, Cow say's he is spying on your bike. we laugh.


    Jimmy don't tune my carb bikes, Cow does. but Jimmy tests them on Dyno, he is best dyno operator I've see,Marcus Wilson was a good dyno operator too.
