Default Re: Dual Suspension 'Roo'

Thank's Mrfubs.
The new Roo motor is now residing in the Goat, with the torque pipe and chainsaw Weber, it is obviously more of a fast/street motor than a Dirt bike motor and I think it suits it's new home.
I have ordered a set of 24" Rims for the dual suspension bike and striped the her for final welding and painting.
It will get the reed valve motor, possibly with the twins feeding the reeds? as I liked the way they looked.
The manifold is welded scrap steel and some of my welds were that bad that I ended up welding over it that may times, it took a fair bit of grinding, and so ended up with that cast look. The manifold fits the Soft tail nicely, and I'm still deciding on trying to make another for the reeded motor, as it was quiet a feat to get it to fit so well with both carbs level and in line.
But I'm not sure that my $15 barrel carb is giving this motor everything it wants? However does fit nice, maybe with a UFO style filter and was giving me good throttle response.
