    I have a double throat and a couple SU carbs I might throw on it. No distributor. Wandering if someone welded a shovelhead And panhead cover together. I heard there was a guy from Ohio making these covers. Don Ramsey maybe?

    Starts easy but Id like to ditch the Mikuni for sure. I have a double throat S&S and a couple SU carbs but I heard I should throw a Bendix on it for reliability?..... I want the bike to be fun to ride and its staying a kick bike.

    If that's what you want leave well enough alone..... Don't fuck with it ride it.........

    Ask yourself why you have all of those spare parts in boxes???? I'll tell you why it's because the best parts are on the bike right now......

    There’s plenty of reasons to ditch a mikuni. Performance and reliability are nowhere on that list. Finding a better carb than a mikuni is hard work.

    I agree.......

    You know, my first Harley had a carb just like the one on his bike...... I rode the bike everyday for two years as that was my only way to get around and I NEVER had to adjust it, not once....... It was a great carb........

    That type of sticker is quite common... Just about every biker that has been around for a while looses someone and they often make those to remember friends. I doubt you will find anyone on here that knows any more than that.
