Seems like Guys are raving about the later CV carb adapted to Ironheads but you can also go to J&P Cycle and pic up a Zenith Carb Kit all Ready to Bolt On, Good All Around and has a stock look to it

Tillotson...

Jason
Tillotson....Really..???

......... Thought they only worked good on Snowmobiles.......

================================================

The Zenith is a copy of the Bendix...Used on the Sporties from around 72 to 76.....Did a fine job of metering fuel....

As Monte said the Hot ticket is the CV carbs...
Trock Cycle use to make an adapter that made installation easy....

I suppose I should have said good useable carburetor. HA HA

I did a search for Tillotson and found them for chainsaws???

The carb says Harley Davidson on it, did Keihan make them?

I can make the bracket for the CV......

No..The Keihin is a Japan carb company....
Tillotson was a replacement carb for the Linket DC-6 carbs that the old 900cc Sporties used.... Tillotson came on the Sporties in 66 and ran up to 71...
Reason for Harley to change carbs was a fire at the Linket plant..


-Jason
Tillotson was into making carbs for small displacement motors and came to Harley's demands....

They worked pretty good when new...Being no float bowl, Dang things would run up-side-down...But are one huge pain in the A#@ to keep on line and in tune as age came on...
