Default re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip

i've gleaned so much from this forum its time i can hopefully give something back! It seems that every bike i mount an engine on to needs to have the carb moved, so the first one i spent hours on welding up a steel manifold. it worked well but took to much time to make it look presentable. However you can get a copper street 45 deg elbow in 5/8". It seems this size (5/8)is used for central air conditioning systems and any good supply house will have them. the stock clamps work fine its a perfect fit on both ends and if you need to make it longer just solder on another piece (or silver solder if your worried about temp) i took some temp readings of the manifold after riding hard for about 10 mins and could not get it over 100 degs so for me regular plumbing solder works just fine. if i can get my camera up ill post a pic. Hope this helps someone out. Thanks guys your great, Joe
