Is your quest for 70 hp limited to a price range and specific type of bike?

If you want close to 70 hp, I would maybe consider looking for a 550 Nighthawk. There was a 650 and 750 also but not 100% if or which one would have been shaft drive. I know the short time they made the 550, it was shaft driven.

The motor might be heavier than what you're looking for but the V65 Magna was also shaft driven. The Sabre might be another to look at.

Been a long time but my 650 Nighthawk was rated at 72 HP and was shaft driven. Was a fun bike quick bike being shaft driven center of gravity was high so cornering was a bit iffy but I was young and inexperienced.

I beleive the Sabers were higher HP at 90HP.

I dont know but I assume the drive train of a Nighthawk is simular to a shadow where the style of frame is what differs.

The 550 Nighthawk had more of an appearnace like the Shadows of that era only with an inline 4 vs. the V-Twin.

Still curious what Elwood has planned for the motor after he finds one.
