    Nice, but is that an optical illusion that those carbs are slanted way back OR is the engine sagging at the back end just a bit?

  21. Flatheads have always been the prettiest motors in my eyes. That is one sexy engine! Can't wait to see the box on the road again. Kinda gonna miss the whistle!

    When you say whistle, you wouldn't be refering to my patented vaccume leak entrance, soon followed by the bi-weekly carb rebuild in the parking lot of the pub would ya?!?!

    Haha, good times!
