For many, the American are dream to own a Harley. At the first sight of the FG-VT9 engine, you might be curious why we design to make this V2. Here is the story.

I came across a Harley-Davidson panhead engine more than 100 years ago on the engine forum in December 2020. The cylinder diameter of the engine is 16.7mm and the stroke is 21mm.

When I first saw this engine, I was deeply attracted by it, so I decided to make my own mini version of V2 engine model based on this engine. I like engines and collect a lot of them. I really enjoy them when they work. state. I searched a lot of information from Google and YouTube, hoping to restore the appearance and keep the simulation level as much as possible, including engine noise, but I did not have a real engine, nor even looked at the physical machine, because it is too old. Perhaps it only exists in the hands of a handful of collectors and it is too difficult to obtain.

In January 2020, I started to build the plan. This is difficult. I can only get engine information from the existing data. I chose a rocker arm design that is different from the panhead engine, and adopted a rocker arm design with a common ohv structure. Yes, it is easy to process, which will shorten my production cycle, I can’t wait.

The engine will all be made by cnc. It has a beautiful and atmospheric appearance. I like to collect it, so I can't bear it when i found in the future it will become dark due to oxidation. So I will use anodized cylinder surface to keep it bright. At the same time, the rocker cover will be chrome-plated, and the shiny appearance will make my mood better.

I spent a long time, because my job is an engineer, I can only complete my production in my spare time. After 7 months, it was finally completed. I started to try to start, but it failed. Then I started to check the camshaft and found that the angle was wrong. I thought the camshaft angles of the two cylinders were equal, because they were so in my previous engine design experience. Then I simulated the 3d plan, and it seems that my guess is to fight for, and it also needs to add the angle of the ejector rod tilt.

I was about to start trying to start one of the cylinders. I removed the spark plug of the cylinder with the wrong cam so that it would not add resistance to the cylinder that was ready to run. I welded a Hall igniter and tested it. He succeeded. The engine sound is very nice and fascinating.

I rebuilt the cam, and contacted my good friend and asked him to make a new cam for me, yes, he used a cutting machine to make the cam.

After I started to assemble the new cam and checked the ignition timing of the two cylinders, I found that if the trigger magnet is placed on the flywheel of the crankshaft, then he will need 2 igniters and 2 Hall triggers, which is not good, etc. I started successfully, I will put him on the already finished distributor.

Astonishing! It started. Next I will optimize it to almost perfect, this is an impressive V2 engine, it is my treasure collection, I am happy to share the construction plan with you, maybe when you see this engine, you will miss the engine story of more than 100 years.

  • mario ouimet: January 10, 2022

    Is it possible to buy this mini pan head motors if yes how the price thank you

  • Holger Dudda: December 12, 2021

    Is it possible to buy this Cison V2 FG VT 9 motor as a kit ?
    Or ist it possible to buy the drawing for this motor to build it by myself?
    Best regards from Germany

    Is there anything of a 5spd transmission that you can use for a OCC chopper bicycle for this I’m sure this engine has enough torque to to run the bicycle and transmission if someone could come up with a gas bike kit to run this engine and transmission would be a total break through without having to resort to a bulky lawnmower engine that isn’t a politically correct engine to make a gas powered chopper bicycle because I’ve been told this concept that I have is a great idea 💡 💡💡💡

  • Rokon: September 12, 2021

    Are there plans to sell a frame , frontend and other parts for this motor in the near future?

  • Frank A Schiavo: September 12, 2021

    So you are selling plans to build one or the actual kit?
