The work you did on that bike for Carl was amazing. When I first saw the before photo I was stunned that anyone was able to bring it back to life.

I've done several that are similarly impressive. The "before and after" composite photos are my favorites.

The before and after sure give a good take on what type of work you do.

They all have potential, and they all need work!
For a few seconds, I thought you had a left side monobloc carb on the right side; THEN, I zoomed in and see you have the bowl off!

I had 2 left side monoblocs on my '67 when I first got it, it was a BUGGER to tickle the one on the right!
