Nice...

Anything worth doing is worth overdoing...a little's good, more's better, and too much is just enough

Very nice! Does that air cleaner get sucked into the motor at high rpm?

Hey Mark not sure about that but I swear I see the hood dimple when I punch it. Maybe its just my eyes getting sucked to the back of my head!

Yea, even with a 4" cowl hood clearance is a issue with the Victor Jr and the 1" carb spacer. Looking to fab up something more high tech. Maybe twin cold air tubes down to the lower valance.
