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?

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.

Honest Charley makes them. You can see them @ www.coker.com/flathead.asp I have also seen 1 that had a lincoln V-12 flathead, It had 2 saddle bags with vents that held 2 radiators.
