Those mag cases are an absolute bitch to keep shiny! What were the carbs on that one? The manifolds don't look like they would clear a VW shroud. Was it a dedicated conversion carb kit?

Ooohh! Using the EDIT button in the time allotted! Looks like a cut down stock manifold mit carb flanges welded on and a coupla 28 PICTs or 26 PCIs. Neat!
Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world.

Hey Mel,

This bike was a Rosema built bike. He built less than 10. This bike was a total BLAST to ride!
So friggin cool I should have NEVER sold it. The air ducts to the air box were all hand made. Rosema was a master sheet metal guy. I never polished it. Just rode it and serviced it as needed. I could start it by hand (gspd style) it would tune up so well. I sold it to a collector with the Steib attached. Caught a lot of hell for it too for letting it go outside the USA! I sold it to a guy in OZ! It's now in a private collection down there in good hands.
