New Panhead, shovelhead and knucklehead engines

Does anyone have experience with any of these three "new" re-designed motors? Pros? Cons? I am thinking about getting one for a bike project, tell me what you guys think!

S&S aquired "Flathead Power" and you can expect the same S&S quality in thier replica Old Ironhead Engines as with any S&S product. They are a little pricey but if I had the coin I would get one of thier knucklehead motors. I would want a fully assembled long block. A friend of mine bought a complete S&S shovel motor from them. He has had it for about a year now but it runs great and sounds great.Hasn't had any problems with it.

No problem, if you buy one of those motors keep us informed about it.
