...incredible bike man.
I have 2 dumb questions:
in the gas and oil lines I see a rubber in each end; did you put those rubbers or the lines come with them?

-How do you hold the outer part of each carb?

thanks

Alumin(i)um :) bracket made to fit between manifolds and carbs to allow these rubber mounted brackets to attach to, and the bowls slide in and mounts tightened up.

The rubber and small connectors are added after the lines are cut to size.

Head steady done and chromed, catch tank done, polished and fitted, drain bolt added to bottom, clutch fitted, 5 plate not 4, and stronger springs, ali plate instead of the readily deforming steel one. The catch tank fills the gap on the left nicely.

Pegs, tacho mount and pipes all left to do.

Hello there

Megas are from Barons Speed Shop in the UK.

I'm heading out to Shanghai next Wednesday for business, will I need to bring a coat????

Bloody freezing here right now......

Thanks.

Yeah bring a coat, it's still sunny and warmer than London though! I'm in shirt sleeves under the jacket - could change next week though!

How long are you here - let me know if you have time to hook up for a coffee/beer.

Cheers,
Pete

Newb to drag bikes question: Is the catch tank collecting the spent oil in a lost oil scenario? If not, can you help a newb understand the reason for it? I ask because I have a 650 motor and old frame/roller I intend to turn to this purpose, and I'm trying to learn what can before I get started.

Thanks,
Tom

PS bike is looking great...
