The oil pan was gouged bad, so I added some detail with rotary cutter on a dremel.

HaHaHa                 It is not as sharp as it looks.It really catches the light but it will be buried down low.It may add some cooling, but its more for shine.I forgot to order the 18mm o ring for between the cases, so I'm on hold for now.I got a Dyna S setup with new coils and wires and the carb gaskets in the wind.Also The icelandic sheep hide from Canada is heading my way.Oh Yeah its coming together. Im leaning Chrome molly for the Drag bar if $ allows and polish, Or it will be black tube after I raid some friends cut off piles if I'm out of cash, which aint far away, hahahaha.   I liked it when I bought it, But I love what I have built, I might tear up when she starts again.

Reminds me of the wild beauties in Street Chopper magazine a long time ago.  I'd would be looking for "paint by Molly" if I saw this one in a 1971 magazine.   I really like this project a lot.

That's a rare bit of kit, I see its for a CB750, they have a different carb spacing than the Kawasaki, you used to be able to buy rubber manifolds to put VM29 smoothbores on Honda 4's, I've never seen manifolds for Honda spacing on Kawasaki's...

From what I have read on old rags is they are spaced for the KZ and they have different boots for the CB that have another angle to make this spacing work on the CBs . I will make a new backplate easily if needed to correct carb spacing.

I can't remember all the details, I had one of these on a Honda 4 in the early 80's, good job finding one it that condition !  They actually worked way better than pods...
