Homemade Amal Carburetor Shorty Velocity Stacks With Screens: Take 2

Because it was apparently not metal, the window screen I cut out the first time started tearing so I came up with another brilliant idea and bought some cheap strainers. I think they came out MUCH better this time.

I had a Mercury spill in the garage due to a leaky carb sync. This stuff is pain to clean up. Took a paint brush, some gloves, carb board, ziploc bags, and some shaving cream to get most of it. What stinks most of all is when it happened it freaked me out and I jumped backwards hitting my CB750 gas tank off the shelf onto the floor, top first. My pristine 1976 tank now has some bad dents. I was just going to clear over it, now it needs painted. BUMMED!

The Cucurbita pepo Ruination By Pest and Spore

Our poor pumpkins didn't even survive a week thanks to rabid squirrels and mold. I tried my best to save one from a squirrel feast but it didn't make it.

Stay Put

Another one checked off the list. I've been running a temporary brake stay on the CB750 since I put the drum on. Max graced me with a good nap yesterday and I got the new stay made. I'm debating if I want to shave the fork legs or not, but I'm also still debating if I want to run some sort of fender. After I put some miles on it I'll make that decision. I do have to admit the front 4.5X19 tire makes the front end feel a bit heavy, something to get used to for some style points. The tread pattern is a little square, as well.

Slop that shit on, let the grinder smooth it out.
