Flathead powered motorcycles

I was watching TV this weekend and saw a flathead powered motorcycle. It was a 37-40 60 hp flathead v8. The narrater said these bikes can be purchased but I did not catch who it is that builds them. Anybody heard of this?

mantta is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I read an article about them in Mechanics Illustrated many years ago. The bike with the flathead engine was on the magazine cover. It was in the 50s, don't remember the exact year.
