Yeah that is one nice think about living in the middle of no where. I'm in central Pennsylvania. (Amish country). There is an amazing twisty canyon road about 3 miles from my house. There is some awesome riding out here.

Glad to see that she's moving! I was searching thru the thread, and might have missed it, but what grit sandpaper did you use on the aluminum before using the polish?

A work of art good man, really well done. So what size and specs were the jets? How much of an increase over stock?

Beautiful bike man, looking through this thread pretty much sealed the deal on me wanting to paint my frame red this winter

Its right next to the main jet. it sits down in a little more than the main. Your carbs might be a little different than mine. The best thing to do is pull out your jets see what size they are and measure them and look at PJM"s sizes. I know its a pain but that makes sure you get the right ones. You could look at my pictures to see if we have the same carbs. If you do then Im sure those jets would fit you would just need to know what number size you need for your setup.

Thank you, I would love to see my bike get a nomination. Yeah I'm lucky to have back roads. One advantage to living out in the sticks.

For some reason I was under the impression he lived somewhere between Harrisburg and State College. Gorgeous riding country up there (so says an ex-Johnstown boy).
