So I'm researching this, to see if I can take the engine out of my chopper and install it in my rail.  The S&S makes more than 100hp.  The VW engine is about 60hp.

I know they have drive flanges that hook up to the motorcycle engines

Why don't you just get a pinto engine and bolt it up. they make a ton of adapter plates that will fit. The 2.3L engine is plentiful and actually gets great power and is extremely reliable.
I can give you a ton of tips and tricks to help with power
It'll probably be your cheapest easiest bet

I know folks are Putting GEO Metro (3cyl) Engines in Kit Aircraft. 

Not going to win any Air Races but can cruise at 80 MPH for as long as the fuel holds out. 
Not MPP... ONE TASK!  Teach them!  :)

I calculated that if I take a 1.0L 3 cyl geo metro engine carbureted put a turbo (not for power) under the carburetor, the turbo will help homogenize the air fuel mixture (which is death to the carburetor) shove the air fuel mix into the intake manifold where I can heat the intake to 400F ish to help vaporize the fuel, at 12 PSI of boost I could get close to 80 MPH with a really lean mixture and around 160+ hp from the engine.

Sorry, as soon as I saw the Geo metro engine my mind flooded back with stuff I had designed and calculated but never tried.

I got a bunch of random stuff in my head when it comes to cars

Finally got my Suzuki C-50 back from the customizer.  Happy with what's been done so far, but still has a ways to go.  However, it's finished for now and street legal so I'm happy with it.  Still have to change out the exhaust, air intake and make some more paint choices.
