W&W Cycles Additions

VG Big Twin Swingarm Frames

These Dutch made reproduction frames can be used as stock replacements or as a basis to build a bobber or chopper from scratch. Dimensions and details closely follow the factory originals. Most castings feature raised numbers and markings just like the factory used them. They are made in steel/nodular cast iron (ductile iron or spheroidal graphite iron) with 30-degree rake. Versions are available for 1958-'64 Panheads, '65 Panheads and '66-'84 Shovelheads.

VT-Cycle ULR Cylinder Heads


Made in Finland, these ULR cylinder heads are made in cast aluminium. While they look quite original (cast finish), on the outside they feature an advanced combustion chamber design for improved combustion and breathing. The chamber volume is 100 cc, giving 6.1:1 compression on a 74" and 6.5:1 on an 80" motor. Substantially more material allows for custom milling and pop-up pistons. Another update are the 14 mm spark plug threads (3/4" long) for modern and more common plugs.
Dyno tests have shown 18% power and 13% torque increases over a stock 1946 UL with medium compression heads - "true rear wheel numbers - the power was up big time and the torque curve is impressive! Remember, torque is the most important figure with flatheads." For '36-'48 Harley 74" and 80" Flathead Big Twins.

Bates 'BattBoy' 65

Modern gel or Li-ion batteries offer a significant advantage - they are leak-proof. Those who have ever experienced spilled acid in the battery tray, on the frame or on the swingarm will highly appreciate this fact. On the other hand, owners of classic bikes do like the looks of the original battery and the corresponding cover and mounts. With a Bates 'BattBoy' battery box you can have the best of both worlds - what looks like a period 32 amp 12V on the outside can house a safe, modern battery within. Just hook it up with two eyelet wires to the terminals on the bottom of the lid; when using suitable Antigravity versions, you even have stash space left for a few small spare parts, safety vest, tools etc. Fits FL, FLH 1965-'84 and Sportster '67-'78 with electric start. It is made in black ABS, with outer measurements of 202 mm wide x 167 mm high x 129 mm deep.

PanAm Oil Pads

This oil pad soaks up two liters of fluid, for example oil or gas. A reinforced top and an anti-slip foil on the bottom side make the PanAm oil pad a useful helper in the workshop, garage or living room. Made in Germany in black polypropylene.
