That chrome and the copper look looks great! You gave me some ideas about an experimental intake on one of my Morini's . I got to thinking about the shingle effect of those fittings. I got to thinking about Venturis and there effects. My hour glass shaped hole in my main jet diddy I just recently discovered ''by accident'' and like a whole bunch at the moment!

I was beginning to think about the fork crowns I had lying around before for a carb manifold.

What I am thinking about now is hydraulics of air so to speak. A way to speed up the air a tad right at the carby. '' I still pounder what I can get away with with a big carb'' Was thinking bigger ''fatter'' shorter intake with a funnel shape right where the carb bolts up to said manifold? This in theory dunno? Might better atomize fuel? Mebbe from air sped up at said carby?

I may try it or never get around to it at all. This thing run's very well to begin with right now. It's the ol grass is greener somewhere analogy. I can't help but want to try some things and see what they do...

I was wondering how your higher rpm's are fairing off with your long manifold? It looks Kewl..

I purchased about 9 years ago now one of the authentic models ''not a knock off brand'' the Chuck Noris Total Gym's .

For three months all I did was target my back muscles with it. Best money I ever spent. I have not thrown my back out but one time in my life about 18 years ago. I do lots of stretching out now. That total gym can target back muscles precisely better than anything I myself have yet to see when used correctly..
Still gotta have a since of humor.
