Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 30, 2010
Rare 1 of 18 Feuling W3 motorcycles, produced and sold by the Feuling Motor Company, to be at Las Vegas auction Thursday, January 6th 2011. Own a piece of motorcycle history!
The W3 ® is a three cylinder W configuration engine, designed and developed by the late Jim Feuling (1945 - 2002) and his crew. A truly revolutionary design, the W3 ® engine is air cooled, two-valve, triple gear driven cam, with a 4” bore and 4”stroke creating a 150 cubic inch monster. Amazingly this engine produces 150 horsepower and 170 ft-lbs. of torque to the rear wheel.
Luke Leatherman from Feuling Motor Corporation states: " The engine uses its cubic inch to create all the power thus keeping the package very reliable. The three-cylinder arrangement pro-vides inherent smoothness, and the low center of gravity is perfect for motorcycles".
Jim Feuling and colleagues have developed and licensed technologies to many major companies over the years, including Ford, Harley-Davidson, Oldsmobile, Edelbrock, Bell Sports and Shoei. The FEULING Companies have been home to many world land speed records including the world’s fastest motorcycle (332.103 mph), the world’s highest horsepower engine (10+ hp per cubic inch), the world record for the flying mile (267.399 mph) driven by A.J. Foyt in the Olds/Feuling Aerotech, the world class CENTERFIRE and MAX FLOW cylinder heads, the AR exhaust system, the CVX muffler, the high efficiency Three-Valve Combustion Chamber System and the awesome W3 ® motorcycle engine. With decades of experience in automotive, motorcycle and aviation design and development the staff at The Feuling ® Motor Company is second to none.
