Last weekend i was at "Linkert Attack" party, near Sancerre France, one of the best in Europe and only for iron machine. I looked this Panhead from GB but can't find the owner and talk about this tech tip :cool: and you ? Explain about the heads ? Other photos or post about this modification ... ???

BretonHD!

Folks thought they needed two carburetors long before Panheads, as you can see in my attachment.

Most of the benefits were achieved by Linkert when the throttledisc was changed from vertical to horizontal for the DC Models, without the drastic fabrication and tedious synchronization of two carburetors.

Yes, BretonHD!

But is there any other kind of charm?

The Pan runs, and that in itself is a delight.

I fear the practice thrived by virtue of eliminating manifold leaks alone.

Hello Bretonhd! I just saw this thread. I am from sweden and i am the owner of this bike.
The heads are made by George Smith in the 60s. The intake valves are 2" and the exhaust are standard.

That Bike was in The Horse 2? years ago.....

Really cool bike. It has a "Speedy Shift" on it as well if I remember right.
And if you look real closely at the oiltank there is a number 5 pinstriped on there.

5 inch Stroke on that pan.
It had some kinda racing carbs that only opened halfway or something to get over running too rich.

When I first saw that bike I lost sleep over how cool it was.
It inspired me to run dual carbs on my bike......mainly just to look cool.
Very cool bike.
Love it............obviously.

Wow, someone spent some serious time welding those up! Nice job. Really cuts down the possibility of intake leaks too! I'm curious about the pair of extra holes on the manifolds, what are they for?

Hi old.wrench .

I use studs with smaller diameter than the original linkert mounting bolts.
So the pins is for alignment the gasket /insulatig blocks.
