Making KH Cylinders? Maybe Hot Ones!

I read that Anders is making some KR barrels, and I got to thinking that it would likely be more profitable to build KH barrels as there are more KH and KHK bikes around. There seems to be a shortage of KH cylinders and with all the interest in making Magnums, there certainly seems to be an increasing demand.

I wonder where you read that Anders is making K cylinders. He is back in Sweden and not currently a functioning member of Flathead Power. JKE

Does someone have to be part of FHP to make something?

Hi John,

I read it on the front page of Flathead Power. I did not know that Anders is no longer here, or a member of the company?

"In addition to our famous Cylinders and Heads, we can now offer complete Single and Dual Carb Knuckle Engine assemblies up to 120" and Custom-built bikes, including the World's First 1947-type FL Replica, "The Time Bandit". New products introduced include New Diecast Rocker Covers, Reinforced UR Cases and Cylinders for KR 750s."

It would be nice to have some KH cylinders available. Not that there are a lot of KH bikes still around, but it seams that there is still a demand for the cylinders for Magnums, and other project bikes.

Best Regards,

"cylinders for Magnums"
KH is only useful for converting K to big flywheel without using stroker pistons, replacement for KH, and strking 45.
Magnum = Sportster.
