Thanks mate. I had been doing a bit of reading over at VTF and decided a dual carb setup would be the way to go. I have heard of a few people using the VM and TM carbs.
How did you fit your TMs to the TR1?
I agree about Hageman's bike, it would be hard to build and even harder to pull off a decent copy. But I really like the idea of rear sets, high flat seat and lower bars so I may just head in that direction. Cruisers are nice but not my style.
Here she is with the old exhaust back on. This gives me the ground clearance I need but is not very nice looking. I have been thinking about using "GP" style mufflers, one on each side.
Anyway that is all just ideas in my head.
For now I need to touch up the paint on the front rim and rebleed the front brakes. Ohh and sort out the carb sync as I am fairly sure that is why it runs so bad. Just waiting on the new manifolds to arrive before I can do that.
On another note, is the an easy method for cleaning the oxidization off the engine while it is in the frame? I had thought about removing it but am wanting to ride it around whist working on it.
