And the power went from .......  to ...............  Don't keep us in suspense.

Is that Dyno available for rent by any chance?  I have to drive for hours to get to the one we're currently using and I don't have the funds or space to get one in house.

There's certainly some intriguing & impressive work going on here.
Is the bike being built for racing, or just in the style of?
Are the exhaust flanges stainless? Any further finishing to happen to them, I wonder what a solid piece like that might do to heat dissipation?
Look forward to the updates.

Thanks! 

The bike is only used for the street.  I had the stainless steel exhaust flanges laying around for a car manifold. They aren't light! 

I built this mainly to prove to myself that I could build a race engine and do a bit of aluminum fab.  Eventually I will tear it back down for powder, electrical, and a new swing arm bushing.

The dyno is currently buried as the cars are packed in for winter storage. It is also for sale! ;)

 I really used it for jetting for proper air/fuel ratio.  I think we were in the 40hp range...stock was around 25hp.

...onto the next 69 CB350 build!
