Craigslist Pick of the Week: Harley Powered Dragster


Craigslist Pick of the Week: Harley Powered Dragster

Now this is some fun stuff. This 88ci Harley-Davidson powered dragster, which looks all the world like a slightly puffed up Jr. dragster, was built by Phil McGee who is a major supplier of parts to the Jr. dragster community.

The CraigsList ad for it says that the car can compete in normal bracket classes and we’re thinking that it moves out pretty well with the five-speed trans and grunt from the V-Twin. Hell, even today’s higher-powered juniors, with their alky swilling, billet-block engines, make enough snot to scare the pants off the occasional parent who jumps in to make a fun lap.

The chassis is 17 feet long and the whole car only weighs about 500 pounds, so although one guy could roll it around easily enough, it won’t fit into the bed of your truck. Some custom fab work and creativity could result in a carrier system that may allow you to, though.

We wish they included some elapsed times for this creation, because we’re thinking it screams. The seller also said that he will include all the parts to make the car capable of swallowing a 103ci engine for even more snot.
