You can gain a small amount of clearance by changing the shock to a cheapy spring type, then maybe there is clearance for a Z type manifold?

The stock updraft carb like on my build would probably fit but the angle wouldn't to good.

Yeah MT..I'm just disappointed I didnt see it. Wondering if a 6"or so manifold with elbows can work.. On the plus side i remembered this tank an that i gave up on it because i couldnt find cap.. then i thought all i have to do is solder a new filler and cap.. Zazaam.

Yes, actually the 6" will improve the low to mid rang, like cannonball said a Z or S shaped manifold.....................Curt

You can make a curved manifold like I did for clearance, curved the exhaust too.

Hey cb2..i swaped out the shock.. didnt gain a worthwhile advantage. I also swapped the forks to my cheap springer.. took em off my low crusier..put on this build....then remembered why i dont bother with them.. No mountable Brakes!!
