I was at the Harley museum recently in Milwaukee. While strolling around, I took an elevator to the third floor. I must have pused the rear door button and when I got off, I was drooling. I was at the area that does the restos on the finds that come in. When I peaked around the corner, I saw what appears to be a reverse trike powered by the Revolution engine. It was set up for a photo shoot! I took the pix to a harley dealer in NJ and they claimed to know nothing about it. I thought I would ask the experts here at 1130cc.com. Im also posting a bunch of VRod pictures that I took at the museum. It was cool to see clay mock-ups, drawings on napkins, etc. I hope you guys like them.

I believe that that chassis would be stout enough for TWIN TURBOS!

I saw that too. Bombardier claimed to be the pioneer on that design, but H-D beat them to it by a decade or so.

It looks like that Revo motor has an Evo primary belt housing coupled up to it.
Ya, saw that right away. That's an Evo or Twin Cam whatever they call it now. The only thing "restricted" is the HP. LOL! I think the restriction was for the photo shoot area, not the entire floor. The trike is 6 years old.

Could be true but which company had the ballz to put it in production and market it first? I believe H-D has some truly creative people but the marketing side won't let any of it get to production for fear the traditional air heads will get their panties in a bunch.

Twin front wheel, single rear wheeled motorcycle engine powered vehicles have been around almost from the beginning of cycling. At least since the 20's.
Morgan has built them since at least then and is still building one with the S&S X-Wedge engine. Some of the early ones powered by JAP V-Twin engines, same as used in Brough Superior's of the day.

I wonder why they never photographed the left side of this bike? All of these pics are either of the front or right side. Im glad to have introduced the left side to the world! lol.

Examples are the Nova and 1100 OHC, and this trike.
