The Harley Davidson Tribute Cannon

Unread postAuthor: MikeNice » Mon Dec 04, 2006 3:23 am

This spudgun was actually built as a gift for my uncle who has been riding for years. He's way into Harleys and I thought a spudgun themed that way would be pretty cool. It'll make a perfect Christmas present. The combustion chamber is 18" x 4" with dual ignition points all internally wired with solid 14 ga copper, including the ignition points. The barrel is 48" x 2" with a knife edge. Hope ya'll like it.

Here's a close-up of the chamber. You can see the ignition screws better in this pic.

Looking down the chamber is the dual ignition and all of the wiring for it. I like puting the wires on the inside, it keeps the look clean and the combistion doesn't really last long enough to damage the wiring. I've been using the solid copper wiring for a while now. After a few uses the ignition points tarnish but there hasn't been any performance degradation so I'll keep doing it that way.

Just about everything Harley Davidson looks sweet! Your uncle is a lucky uncle. He's got a cool bike, and is getting a cool cannon. Good job, and good thinking.

The real funny thing is, no, I don't own a Harley . . . I like Jap-bikes! I have a Honda in the garage and a Toyota in the driveway. I always have preferred the Japanese cruisers over Harleys. Lower cost, lower maintenance, great look and great performance. Hay drac, was your HD gun a hybrid?

I wish it was a hybrid, it didn't even work as a combustion, lmao. I designed the chamber wrong, but I think that yours looks much better.

... lmao

Nope, it was just that it wasn't properly designed, so the fuel didn't mix well and crap like that. Trust me, I troubleshot that thing so much my head nearly exploded from trying to figure out what was wrong.

You would probably have to double the barrel length and achieve an efficient C:B ratio. That chamber is damned huge for that barrel size.
