I have seen the video of an 1800 being built and how they showed the smoothness of the engine by balancing a nickel on edge as it ran.
My 91 Interstate is just as smooth only I used a penny!

Ticking over at about 800 or so rpm, I sat the penny on the left valve cover and it stood there!
I have photos but they are too big to post here!

The Wings are one smooth running bikes!

:)

I know when I balance my butt on the seat of my '80 Interstate, it stays exactly where I put it through 8000rpm and/or 125mph. :cheeky1:

I can resize them.....just too lazy at the moment!:dude:

I'll do it though! I have a picture of the tach showing the bike is running, the picture of the penny and one of the exhaust showing moisture coming from the left exhaust pipe.

They are on my Myspace site!
