Default Cool wheel

Man those look cool as f. I didn't know about them at first but they look good. I'm afraid to ask what they cost you and I know exactly what you mean about the vacuum line coming off the petcock. Lol I used to burn my fingers nearly off trying to fish that post back on the petcock on the side of the road and get going again. I finally just bought a cheap non vaccum controlled petcock and threw on it. I'm trying to keep it as original as possible in a sense. Finding one that hasn't had the rear fender struts hacked sawed off in the future is gonna be rare I predict. Everyone wants to be cafe racer.

I dumped the vacuum petcock for a manual one. All prior bikes were manuals so shutting off the gas is habit.
