John Trease. He designed, cast, machined,built and sold a V twin, twin cam engine before Harley released theirs.

He also manufactured using the pre quoted process a replica Vincent motorcycle including the engine.

The photo of the engine was taken at my place when he had just about finished a ride around Australia, hence the patina.

Cheers.
