I hear ya. I think a thick USD upper is gonna get in to the radiator in a hurry. Unless you can find a set of yokes with some serious offset to them. Your stock yokes already seem to have a lot of offset.

:CK187: Might have to gooseneck that beast :D ??? GOOSENECK????

Hardtail it and go attack chopper with it. :rock:

pic no worky

Goosenecking is chopping the head tube off and shoving it forward. I know that's more than you want to do, but it'd be about your only option to de-rake this thing with your space constraints up front.

Love me a nice chop :) Nothing fancy here, but a good view of a gooseneck.

well I messed with the fuel. unhooked all hoses. single hose to carb to up in the air and sprayed carb cleaner. with choke on it wanted to fire over.

before I ripped off all hoses. I pulled the one off the fuel pump...and fired...no fuel...so pump is bad?
that's fine. il delete and use a regular tank.
I need to find a regular type of tank or at least something that drips into carbs.
need to make it run before more work on it. or its pointless

waiting on a seat in the mail.
