    Did you have to use Sportster lower Rocker Boxes to use the EMD top covers?

    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.

    That looks like a lot of weight hanging out there. Does it require any extra bracing to keep the carb out there?

    I like to hear the intake noise when you open it up. Going to be pretty lairy hey?

    +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

    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
