thought I'd update the duc pictures. I do have it for sale but that's another story. Painted it this week and then had to take it for a spin. :) Pipes re-plated by Brown's plating. Waiting for the pod to put the gauges back in the stock configuration. I also have a new speedo drive.

Well done, it looks stunning. A buddy of mine had one of these in the exact same colors the early 1970's and I rode it quite a bit. Had to have a very light touch on the Dellorto pumper carbs when starting or it would flood VERY easily!

I wish I'd talked to you bout those Dells. I've a set of 32mm which I rebuilt and got to run quite well at idle and on up to top end. But haven't yet got them to run to my satisfaction at 4k just cruising, when I go on and off the throttle she sounds rough. I think my pumpers are pumping a bit at steady speeds and making it richen up.
I've been running the flat slide Mikuni 36mm on it with no problem, just doesn't have the snap of the pumpers on the Dells.

Hummmmm. That's real eye-candy, for sure. I've admired those since I first saw one back in the day. Should have acted then. Now their prices are crazy high!
