Hey Tom. I was just thinking of you.  I got the ignition timed, carbs installed, new fuel lines in and tank on yesterday. I cranked it over and got spark, but still need to put in fuel and see what happens. Your extra pipes are dry fitted, as I traded footpeg mounts with Steve in Maine. Here it is today:

Thanks for the update Ben. It looks great, can't wait to hear your impressions after you take it for a spin.  :grin:

Tom

Last post for this thread.  I buttoned it up and fired it up and rode about 10 miles.  Still need to adjust the carbs and retorque heads. Then on the market.
