Hog Heaven

“If Harley made an airplane, would you fly in it?”

  1. If Harley made a plane it wouldn't get off the ground... till someone had taken off all the unnecessary crap of it and tuned the engines to give a little more power than a Chinese 125!

    1. Flew Aeroflot back from Moscow some years ago, was marvelous and unlike the people who had insisted on flying BA we got fed ( BA having just lost a game of dare with their catering company!). Astana airways in Kazakhstan, now that was a scary flight!

  3. Don't think HD ever built one, but people are and have been building them since the '20's. Wheelsthroughtime site has an article about one from the twenties. www, and for some HD powered lightplanes.
    My father and I buillt a VW powered plane in the sixties. It always amazes me how loud homebuilt planes are. Ours had 4 short straight pipes and no mufflers.

  4. My favourite bike-engined plane was one I saw which had been built to get over the Berlin Wall. It used two MZ 250cc 2-stroke engines . The idea was not to fly as such, just get up and over the wall. Never used, though, so we'll never know if it would have worked.
