Hello all,
My name is Mike Ross,bought my first Harley at 14 yrs old in 1962,first car in 1965 a 53 Olds Super 88 convertible.Started hot rodding and polishing aluminum 1973 with a 1971 FLH Harley.First hot rodded car was a body off restored 68 Corvette,ported polished blueprinted 350ci.Over the years have restored many muscle cars now have a 460 powered AC Cobra setup for road racing and do a little drag racing for fun.Also have several Harley all groundup built the latest powered by a 155" R&R Twincam.Recently purchased a 2000 custom built Boss Hoss motorcycle with 580 dynoed hp.The reason I joined Motorsports Village is because a couple of the members are working with SB2 stuff.I'm putting together an aluminum Donovan with SB2 topend 427",looking to get into the 800hp range for the Boss Hoss

Mike welcome to the board........again.

If you're going to put that much engine on that Boss Hoss and actually ride it, then you got much larger kahoonas than me! ;-) Good luck!

Google search Boss Hoss motorcycles and you'll see the different models they sell. They've been around for a while but I've never seen but one around these parts.

I did that, but 580hp is a lot for a bike traction wise. These things must be pretty heavy. Its not like a 300hp in a Jap bike is it.
