There was a thread about this on the fuck! board. Everyone said they ran like total shit and it was a terrible idea. If you want a car carb on your bike, why not buy a cheapo SU at a swapmeet and convert it for bike use, or you could get real weird and get an old side draft model A or winfield pot.

Well, I have a few spare 97's...and I like the look of a downdraft. My plan was to run 3.5's and cut the manifold inb tight, recess the air cleaner in the the tank side.
Anyway, I'll search on the other board for those threads...I heard they were not that much different than an 'E' type. I need to do the research on the flow rates, maybe look at some smaller Ford carbs.....my post was to shortcut the research and take the easy way out.

Maybe try an 81 from a V8-60? They're a little smaller than the 97's... or if you need to go bigger try a 48. Hopefully I'm not telling you something you already know.

Strombergs are getting too expensive to play with... cheapest I can find a core anymore is for $60 at Hershey. They were half that just a few years ago. You said you already have yours though.

This sounds interesting, does anyone have a link to the post on the FUCK! board? or a link to the FUCK! board so i can look for it? but without knowing how well it works I would ask why? 97's are so expensive. the only reason I would ever use them is if I was building a period hot rod and even then I would opt for cheaper 94's.

Just go to Choppersandpunkrock.com and search the backpages, you should be able to find it.
