Harley Davidson 1948 Panhead Engine. A'Must' for any Harley-Davidson enthusiast! This is a highly detailed precision model kit produced by Marushin of Japan. Marushin, unfortunately, no longer exists having been lost in a fire In its short period of existence, the company became famous for their precision, operating engine models of the Harley Panhead and the Porsche 911 Carrera. The Harley engine (listed here) is also becoming quite rare - especially with the optional Motor Unit.
The engine kit is comprised of more than 300 precision parts including diecast, stamped and machined parts. The engine is assembled with small screws - it can even be disassembled and reassembled, if desired. The end result is a beautiful 1/6th scale model with incredible detail and realism. When completed, the engine is fully "operational" - the crank turns, valves and pistons go up and down, the transmission gears move.The engine has cutaway sections to allow observation of the moving internal parts! Includes the hard-to-find optional'Motor Unit'. The motor unit, powered by a wall A/C power supply (included), becomes a base for the engine. A vertical driveshaft from the motor unit connects with the model engine's transmission. A electric motor drives the driveshaft which in turn operates the engine.
There's even a small twist-grip "throttle" on the motor unit that allows the operator to'rev' the engine between idle and higher RPM. Note: this model is not a toy and assembly must be preformed by someone with more advanced modeling skills. The advanced modeler may wish to add even more detail - there are numerous photos and videos on the internet - just search "Marushin Harley". Note: photos of assembled model and exploded parts are for reference only - this listing is for an unassembled kit.
