Default I need to know about this Dellorto...

I need to know everything you know about this carb, I think it's a Dellorto. Pretty please. Very important part of a project I've got going on.





Thanks in advance!

If it's an SS1 dellorto with a choke of 36mm or bigger it will be very very valuable, dellorto have the numbers on the side just below the top cap. The SS1 is generally pre 70s.

Not an option for this bike.

They're easy to set, I had one on my 350 Ducati tracker. The problem is finding a large bore one because 99% of Italian bikes in the sixties were small capacity.

This is the struggle. I have a line on one but it's expensive.

Just curious......why is another carb not an option? It's the wrong part for many reasons.

I'm cloning a bike that deserves nothing less than 100% authenticity.

Since I started this post, I've spoken to the guy who has all the Lanza bikes, including Quicksilver. He is very knowledgeable about these carbs and took some time and explained a lot.

So, now I know what I need. And now wondering if anybody else here is running or has run one just to hear real experience with them.

I need SS1 with remote float. Size 38mm, 40mm, or 42mm. I have nothing currently. I know of one "sort of for sale to the right guy" (I'd qualify as the right guy), but it is expensive.


JAWS, I'm going to text you a top secret pic, lol.
