Cams, carb, ported, valve springs and sprocket change. Mostly stock.

The only issue I have found is in quickly blipping the throttle, it chokes... but with just a bit slower feed... it jumps pretty good.

I really like the front end. The frame is cool too. What's the stretch and rake on it? Who made it?

I like the blissful tinkling of the bells just before and after the radical thumping of that bike. Real nice bike.

may just have to much acc pump adjustment there - it really shouldn't hesitate/"choke" when you rack the throttle. "a little dab'll do ya"! nice bike btw!
