    Very interesting intake tubes. Solves to common problems, filling the void in the hardtail, and keeping the carb inlets from trying to eat ur giblets. Very creative.

  4. Todd Vietmeier says:

    Ken, The back wheel is just an aftermarket Harley style wheel. (16X5.5)

    Tough looking bike Todd.
    Well done mate!
    Are the carbs difficult to tune with those long intakes?

  9. Todd Vietmeier says:

    William, The carb was easy to set up. I just installed the same size jets that another guy was running on his single carb set-up, and it’s been running awesome!

    Nice build man. What you do with the casing taking off yamaha? Braising?

  15. Todd says:

    Dude, The Yamaha letters are still on the right side, it’s just hard to see in the picture. The left side I ground off though.
