See the sticky at the top. Its a marathon read, but $90 for a new carb from landonsstovebolt.com. That is about as cheap as you can get. Sure seems to be quite a few who are happy with it.

Is there a way to mount these using something like the Polaris Carb flange? I've never seen one in person. But heck they are cheap enough to grab an extra for a spare.

Update, I did not use the 2 st. ells, I used 2 regular ells and cut half the glue socket off one end to make it shorter. I used plain pvc, not sch 40 to make the short pieces to butt-connect the fittings. (I wanted inside diameter a little larger for air flow). The two short grey pieces coming off the Tee, are cut from a pvc conduit 45 degree sweep ell. I cut about 1 inch above where the bend began and cut about 2" back, it gave the perfect angle so everything matched perfect.
I painted it bumper chrome, installed it, and the pict34-3 carb. Everything was airtight so it was time to crank. Carb adjustment was easy, it cranked like a champ.
It idles smooth at 1200, takes off really easy-or really hard, your choice. It will run smooth at 2500 in first gear, I like to idle around on the back roads like an old fart, But it will take an aggressive throttle, like a monster, in all gears,,No bogging-no flat spots..... Mission accomplished!!!!!!! Better version on Page 4........

I almost can't help but wonder if it would work if you avoided the "L" sections and didn't raise the carb up....what's the purpose for the raised section? Could you not keep everything on the same horizontal plane?

DKL mentioned earlier that he wanted the carb up high enough he could work with it easier

I see, I must have missed that part somehow. I bet it would look pretty good Painted and with the carb close to the engine like that. I may try this myself just to experiment with.

Looking good DKL. Notice any differences in performance between the original, Rev2 and Rev3?

you can keep manifold on same plane but room is very, very, tight, and saddle tees and modifications must be used. My goal was to make something anyone could build, use materials that are readily available, and keep it cheaper than cheap.
As far as the performance, I HAVE FOUND NO DOWNSIDE, It runs strong on full throttle, cruises fine, accelerates like a rocket, and putts around like a lamb.........Go to Page 4.....I figured out a version that is flat......

You should post this on NGW... please! I would love to hear the carb kit sellers attack you. I am definitely going to build one to suit my Walboro flat slide carb.

Coming along fine...found some chrome fenders off a 1000, and some Harley fish tail cans, waiting on a solo seat off a Kawasaki (should be fun)......Carb and manifold are still doing fine.....put about 200 miles sneaking on the back-roads, no problems at all.......
(can u tell, me like fish-tails)
