From what I have heard they are junk.

Heavy and unreliable.

And you would have to find some one to build you custom parts.   Which isn't cheap.


Zach Kerber (who specializes in Kohler v-twins) was asked about them once.   He said he wouldn't even mess with one because of the weight.   Not practical to build parts for a engine that only a few would want to try to run.

I can't remember for sure, but if you want custom rods made he will do it for $300-$400 per rod.  His off the shelf rods are MUCH cheaper.

You can build a kohler v-twin for less money that will smoke any flathead.
