    Those are sexy . Wonder how a set of 3 would look on a 292 Chevy 6 ?

    I wonder what the price ranges are? I have a customer with a Triumph engine that's been trying to tune his adapted carbs for years.

    $1700

    3-4 week turn around

    I'm dying to see one of these on an old style Bike.. It would look so cool and work great. The adjustment settings and performance of these carbs are amazing!! They are SO SIMPLE.

    Riley also made smaller 1.5" side draft carbs that look exactly like the 2" just over-all smaller. If demand is present, we will produce the 1.5's as well. The 2" can be easily dialed down to 100 ci. wich might be borderline for some Bike engines.. so, the 1.5's would be really cool to offer as well.


    Thanks for the interest.

    I have seen them in person. Wow! I have been lucky enough to be inside that shop a couple times and have left completely speechless and in awe everytime. The work that Josh and the boys at Zakira's do is flat out amazing.

    Here are Two 2" originals I plan on running the next Race of Gentlemen on a Banger engine.

    Joshua, I might be interested in spare parts if these are going to be offered?

    What makes the Riley carbs so special? Other than the obvious that it is a rare old racing carb and replaceable venturi. Does it have an accelerator pump?

  15. Josh,

    Will the 1 1/2" carbs be the same price? I'd love to put a pair on the '28 Chevrolet 4... gonna be pulling the pennies out EVERY couch I sit in :D

    Thanks for all you guys do!

    Josh, I would be interested in a set of Riley Carbs for my 220 Offy in my '29 / 32 Roadster. Currently I am running 4 SU carbs but the Riley carbs would be correct for the late 40's/early 50's when the engine was built. I have seen intake manifolds for 255/270 Offy but not for the 220.

    The 220 was originally one of two 220 based [176 c.i.] supercharged Offy. One was purchased by Murrell Belanger and the one I have [serial #111B] was purchased by Kurtis Kraft. Let me know what you think - I have access to making a manifold or I can modify the one I built.

    SUHRsc,

    Quick question, do you have specs of the intake manifold in your posted pics - overall length and port diameter?

    Thanks,
    Offy 220

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but is $1,700.00 for a pair, or single carb?
    seems a bit pricey for a single, but what do I know, I'm a cheap ass...........:eek:

    Thought I knew carburetors but never heard of the Riley. How would it compare to the SU, Stromberg, Rochester etc? Love to see an exploded view.
