BARNSTORM KNUCKLE Barnstorm Cycles – SPCL 79

Last updated:

When I bought it, it was blown up, apart, in boxes, and had been that way for the previous 16 years. I wanted it to be my daily rider, so I treated everything suspect. T&O Torque Monster flywheels were beyond my budget at the time, so I got ahold of an 80” S&S flywheel assembly and a new 74” barrels and piston set. Lakeside Machine took care of getting the heads all fixed up, springs, valves and most importantly, the rocker tins. Then we installed the wheels into the cleaned up cases (with new lower end bearings), and built the top end. Roughly, it’s a 78” motor, running the Andrews K cam and of course, solids. With the S&S Super E, she makes good power and is super reliable. I’m also running the Mallory mechanical advance electronic distributor and a Cycle Electric Generator—expensive stuff, but all those components are super dependable. – Jake Cutler
