Picked this up yesterday as a replacement for the 1641 for the time being, its a 1500 singleport. Spend tonight de-greasing! gotta put the top half back together then I got myself another engine! trying to decide what to do with the carbs though... to I take the icts from the 1641 or stick with a stock carb? I am also tempted to take the twinport heads from the 1641 also so i can use the manifolds for the icts that I already have, is this a good idea?

went and picked these up last week!



I filled the visible line of weld from the banding



after many many many hours of rubbing down...



Now just waiting for them to come back from the painters... I hope they fit under my wings!

Also, does anyone need a big set of tyres?
