If a 'special' is enclosed in a streamlined shell for efficiency, then keeping an air-cooled motor from frying is going to be difficult. An advantage of the Liquid-cooled powerplant is that the radiator can be positioned at the optimum location -- and just connected up to the engine coolant stubs by hose cut to custom lengths.

Experimental multi-cylinder liquid-cooled Harley Davidson prototypes built back in the sixties used an under-seat radiator.
