Then this too this. I just sprayed the tank and fenders with a can oh black so i could really see the high and spots on them so i can sand them down and use filler to smooth them out my rear fender is pretty bent up i may have to get another. Im starting on the motor this week so i will be asking some dumb questions

It's nice to get something on wheels, however temporarily. Now you can sit on it going RUMpow, RUMpow.

Release the Ranchero.

But, seriously, I'm glad you painted it. We can't have two of these things running around.

I like the molded in light on the stock fender. You can get new lenses for it.

You can buy a brand new one on Amazon for $100. VM-38-9 is the one you need for an XLCH.

What manifold do you have?

I have a VM38 Mikuni out in the garage somewhere......think it's jetted for a Shovel.

What you have there is a smoothbore CR Keihin. Good carb but the largest I believe they came in was 31MM.
