Thanks that confirmed my suspicion. I was going to run one XR cover on just the front cylinder of my EVO chop, so picked up a Sportster lower rocker box to do it. Sold the bike before doing it though.
Engine looks great mate!
Engine almost ready, Iv;e got one more trick up my sleeve,, I picked up a Side Draft Weber last week with a Manifold to suit a Shovel Head, Iv'e chopped of the Shovel Flanges off and have make a New Flange to bolt on to the S/S Manifold, It's out getting Welded back together, I will post some photos once I get it back.
Weber on, It wasn't a bad Ebay Score
Carby Reco'd and the Engine is now ready to go, Now im going to start on to the Gear Box
+1 on that. Love the roar of a DCOE on full throttle! Used to have two 45's on my race car, no air cleaners....nice.
Walka, love the genuine spun ram tubes - very nice touch.
yes a 45 weber should have a fair induction noise , i rebuilt a RG500 years ago, the induction noise on that with 4 flatside carbys wide open was above the engine noise Awsome!
P.S im still here Walka just been busy rebuilding the MX bikes finished mine now doing an 85 i bought for my young Fella , and with summer coming i ripping out the chevy of the old lewis ski boat for a freshen up plus been trying to rebuild a 67 model Human so it can handle the MX races coming up LOL that seems to the hardest rebuild ive ever done as its pretty run down
Made a start on the Front end on the weekend
Planing on trying to turn one of the Attitdue Inc Springer Front Ends in to a hill climb style one.
started off by chopping up the front Hoop to work out how much room I has going to end up with for the Narrowglide Wheel,, Looks like I have to get the Rockers Machined down and a Custom Hoop made up, No Prob
More up dates later
Droped off the Springer Rockers to a mates last night for a little machining ,
Im using a basic Exhaust this time, Got my hands on a Paughco 2 into 1 and I bought a Baffled Turnout Tip from Moon on my last trip to Japan. All Iv'e done is cut 12" off the Exhaust, Simple but Effective
It's been a while since Iv'e done anything on the Bike, Been busy with work and life, I just got back from Japan and the Mooneyes show again and full of energy to get back on to the build.
I wasn't to happy with the Tank so Iv'e started to fix it,
It's going to be one that I will see how it go's I carn't make up my mind to made it a one piece or split . But here is the start
Starting to take shape,
