@VonYinzer was talking about getting some "do the ton chop or die" patches made up. Wonder what happened with that?

Need someone to find the high res image file. Or make another one. I'll front the cash for an order of patches.
I'm in. If we need to make another one, I'll be happy to. Not like I'm short on time right now. LOL. Don't want to step on any copyrights and whatnot, tho.

Definitely need a Bob and Chop patch. Stickers? I like stickers too.

In true, run what’ya got, social distancing, quarantine form, I’m experimenting with a carb setup for the XS650 chopper. Mikuni VM34 carbs from a snowmobile. Machined and converted CB550 exhaust spigots. 1977-78 CB750 carb boots.

looks made for it. Nice work. How fun will the jetting be? You have any research on a starting point?
