thanks all for the info,
this conversion is strange, but I have to mention that it works,,!! and quite well. I do however agree that I will most likely take it off and go back to what is suppose to be there, Im very big on following what the good folks at Honda did and I think it will be ok, You have to meet this guy I bought the bike from the appreciate what he did. Im going to try to post some pics here so most can see the work he did on the sidecar rig, its outstanding, he seems to "get it" about bikes,
now this carb conversion,,,,well a little off , but I a strong background , as I am a retired Import Car Tech. I do know weber carbs,, so I took it off , cleaned it and it starts runs and works well, with the exception of start off stumble which he claims is jetting. Part of me wants to leave it, and part of me wants to scrap it. Now here is the interesting part. I went over to his house last night to get the remainder of some spare parts that he said he wanted to give me, and OMG I filled up the back of my Comanche pickup truck with spares!!!!!! I mean boxes and boxes fo neatly organized parts, including a complete frame for a 78 two engine blocks full set of Honda Line luggage with mounts,,, windsheilds seats, etc,
man I hit the gold mine with this buy.
at any rate in the boxes of stuff I found what looks like a super complete set of carbs/manifolds/everything for what he claims is a 79. my engine is a 78 and he says they are different. Does anyone know if the carb setups from 78-79 are interrchangable??? I mean physically they look same but ???
thanks and if anyone needs parts,,,lol lemme know,,lol
I mean look at all this stuff,,,
here is a bad picture of the rig,,, look what he used as a suspension and wheel.!!!! and I have to mention he did all this in his garage by hand with wood and fiberglass
