Drysdale Design Philosophy

  1. To build a road legal factory racer- the highest performance motorcycle that could still be ridden to the corner shop for a loaf of bread.
  2. To build a unique machine but still with worldwide parts availability – this has been achieved by utilising wearing parts from existing motorcycles where it didn’t compromise rule #1.
  3. To allow ease of maintenance either at home or at the track. Both the heads, the clutch, the gearbox, the alternator and the waterpump can all be removed with the engine still in the frame -the last four don’t even require the removal of any bodywork.

The choice to use an existing 4 cylinder engine was so overseas buyers could get spare parts more easily in the event of Drysdale Motorcycles ceases to produce the 750-V8 for any reason. Most of the critical parts in the 750-V8 can be purchased through any motorcycle dealership.  This guarantees worldwide parts availability.

Boss Hoss V8

Boss Hoss Motorcycles are one of our favorite V8 bikes.  This page has a photo gallery of Boss Hoss V8 engine bikes.  Boss Hoss cycles are excellently manufactured and have a traditional cruiser motorcycle look and feel.  Boss Hoss also has V8 Trikes and a number of novel custom styles such as the Corvette style.

Boss Hoss V8

Boss Hoss V8

The Boss Hoss bikes were originally sold in kit form.  But now you can get them both directly from Boss Hoss Inc, or from numerous dealers throughout the United States and in other countries. The dealer can have it painted a custom color and install custom components. Many Boss Hoss riders opt for the stock 1970 Chevrolet 350 engine, Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and wide 8-gallon gas tank.  Note, there is also a 2-gallon reserve tank under the seat. The Boss Hoss V8 generally gets 24 to 30 miles per gallon.  And there is a specially designed two-speed automatic transmission with Reverse gear. The wide handlebars give lots of leverage for turns, and there is more ground clearance than you might first guess. But this is not a machine for carving corners like a superbike.

These bikes generally start at approximately $30,000.  Not a small price for the faint of heart, but well worth it for the fantastic craftmanship and super charged V8 Engine.  You’ll definitely enjoy the throbbing V8 engine.  And although the V8 can accelerate with the best of them, you should know that the Boss Hoss V8 Motorcycle was made for cruising. The V8 engine bike is so smooth it makes a four-cylinder motorcycle seem like cement mixer. The seat is comfortable, and you can know you’ve got the best wheels in town.
