Here are some pics of the bike, I cleaned carbs, new fuel filter, cleaned out lines and de rusted the tank and lined the tank as well, cranked up good this morning and waiting for a monometer from Amazon so I can sync them.

You can make your own manometer for a few dollars, they work great. Here's a link.

Hi Zom!
Welcome to the forum from East Tennessee. Nice looking ride you have there. Looking forward to hearing how it runs after you sync the carbs.
