Gigantic SU carbs... I understand that rebuild kits for those things today really took out the huge flat spot they used to have back in the old days (Tom Murphy, How to Build Harley Davidson Horsepower) great book. I used to build bikes myself. This is a very cool Mil for a chopper. I'll have to read the rest of the tread to get up to date as well.

Good project, very well done!! :supz:

The pipes might melt the tubes between the UNISYNS-lots of people are flummoxed by SU type carbs, they work exactly like a flush toilet because Skinners Union made/makes plumbing equipment too. Doing sync on the 4 MIKUNI'S on my old YAMMER VENTURE was a butt kicker the first couple of times, then I bought a mercury stick setup.

At 298 cubic inches, it has to be a lot lighter than those small block Chevy powered bikes. Plenty of toque I'm sure!
