Talking Fuel leak on my first ride

So I finished my new type Skyliner, her name is Ping! Ping!. Mounted my painted chain guard with a "custom" bracket (nut welded to the frame) and took her for a ride. We had a blast running around the neighborhoods, stopping at 7-11 for a slurpie and climbing hills and everything.

Amelia and Ping Ping - - - - - Custom Nutz

Then I started to notice a little fuel leaking out of my carb. Just a couple drops. But then when I got home it was pouring out. So somewhere I have a leak in my carb. It was fine for the first half of my ride, something must have come loose or changed during my ride. I shut the fuel off and ran her till she was dry. I will disassemble and check the float height and use Norm's great posts for info.

The bummer is that the fuel mix ruined my spray paint job on the chain guard. There is oil all over the place. On my rim, on my bike . . everywhere!

But man oh man is Ping! Ping! fast. Crazy fast on the flats.
