Our Virago has made some progress to. We had it running with that Opel Carb (and it sounds fantastic!):

We've ordered a low pressure fuel pump. Turned out they're readily available and reasonably inexpensive.
It's been a while, but we last week we finally made a (succesfull) testride with the car carburetor. SO it now has a home made exhaust, a home made inlet manifold, a Solex (Opel) carburetor and a home made intake. We did have some troubles with the carb, but that was mainly due to the carb being very old.

Horrible vid, but it was the first testride:

We have some more work to do, the clutch is very touchy for example, but now we got it running reasonably well I'm sure we'll make it.
