Took me like for ever to get all the wiring done...and some wine, But I am very happy with the result, And its a happy feeling to finally turn the key and find out it all works!
One green and one red bulletlight! ...think I keep it that way!

Linkert attack!

I really like Linkert carbs and the reason for that is not the fuel mileage cause they suck in that end ...You cant go wrong with a linkert ,and the adjustable speed needles feels just like in the moped days,  I have got myself a little collection thrue the years and I just wish I started earlier cause you could get one for a ciggarettepack in the 80´s....

My latest find was a m74b almost in mint condition, someone must have put it on the shelf and forgot about it...tried it on the panhead ,idles like a puppy!

I havent fired up the knucklehead yet and I guess the carb might slow the overall performance a bit but ......I can always add another :).........A double Linkert setup is way cool but will be a bit tricky and would need smaller venturi-rings to speed up the gasflow while starting.....and a difficult to do manifold, cause I like the carbs to feed one cylinder each....A lotta trix in the Linkert the "jet" and the nossle tip filing tips.....will try some later!

First thought this was a photoshop work ...but it´s not! wonder how the needles work!

Nearly done!

My old ride is a panhead -52.. a lotta elbow grease has made it look like a cristmas ball...the switch is the little shiny ribbed thing hidden under the suicide-clutchpedal....made from a volvo original  switch from the -60´s....I use the foot for switching between hi and lo...

Bluearc distributor!

Had too share some pics of the rightside view of the -47...

Wiring looks a hundred years old and thats the way I like it!
A thing still to do is the spark advance, got everything but the original strap doesn´t fit the bluearc distributor so I have to fabricate be continued... 

And here it is ,the final ...or ?

Bluearc distributor , Roth deflector and the Lindblad pegs.
Tonight I decided to go for stock brake pedal , A little less disco than the lee brake and mid-pegs!
