Some programs take pics as they are and some seem to know right side up . How they know that Huh

No worries . It's still a very nice bike .

Looks Sweet! I hope that even though she is a pretty one that you are building it to be a rider.
You know what they saying:
Ride it! Don't Hide it!
None the less, very nice. :-)

I got the old girl started for the first time!! I took her for a ride for a minute and then it died. I found a small hole in the original copper gas line so time to get a new one. I wanted to keep a few of the original un restrored parts on the bike. So when I get it tuned up I will post a video of the bike running down the road.

A little late on this video, this was the maiden voyage. It wasn’t pretty just waiting for it to get warm again, so I can get the bike out. It’s hard to ride when the wind chill is below 0!!!!!

Video works for me.  Pete, you computer runs like your bike! Lol

I don’t know anything about those early carbs, but the bike revs up fine without a load, probably a very lean mixture.
