Why Now?

The technology to do this experiment has only existed for the past ten years or so.

Due to the increasing development of computer numerical controls in metal development technology and machining technology throughout the nineteen eighties and nineties, Harley-Davidson and the motorcycle industry in general, started reaching new heights in technological advancements. Some of these advancements could immediately be used on panheads and some had to wait to have products developed that would fit the panhead application. In some ways this experiment will demonstrate how computers changed the motorcycle.

The overriding reason this experiment is happening now and not before now is … nobody thought of it before and nobody tried it before…

God Bless America!
