    So I've only put about 50 miles on the bike, not going too crazy, and only had it up to about 50 mph, but so far, so good. Did the color tune, Synched the carbs, but frankly, I'll have to do that...
  8. If it's Just the Mufflers

    I could swear I saw a /2 running mufflers that look like they were from a Honda CB350. Didn't look too out of place. You may have to fiddle with the rear mounting tab...
