And who would buy The US Governments IOU's ? (Treasury Bonds)

I think it's a great scam. Useless bits of paper in exchange for real things you can use.

Even if you don't use it on a bike what a great diagnostic tool.

I have a box full of carbs. Everything from MGAL''s through DC's and Tillotson not to mention S&S Super B Turbo versions. Yes, a keihin is in there.

But I will probably buy another of these carbs just to sit on the shelf to be used as a diagnostic tool. The other carbs I have are (mostly) worth a lot more money and will find a life on an engine at some point in time. (If not in my life time)

I would have the carb on for testing today but I have an electrical issue with the bike it's going on. I have to fix that first. (Oh ! Maybe it's a carb problem ?)

ALL of my stereo system is made in AMERICA.....

CROWN:
SL-II PRE AMP
FM-III TUNER
EQ-II
2 800-SERIES PRO TAPE DECKS
10 POWER AMPS

JBL:

2 PAIR L-100-A
1 PAIR L-150
1 PAIR L150-A

TURNTABLES

1 RABCO ST-8
1 EMPIRE 598

Samsung bought Harman who owned Crown and JBL and fired all the gifted engineers at both companies, shut down the pattern shop in Northbridge, shut down Elkhart, Indiana Crown and moved it all to Mexico

I'll never buy another thing made by them that is not the old stuff.
