The carb on top of his leathers is the nitro carb from the H-D Rayborn 1970 streamliner, as well as its 34 teeth sprocket next to it.

Just above is the collapsed S&S piston from the 1st Riley engine they used...

Some historic parts and drawings in that shot!!!

... Well, the max you can squeeze without trimming too much is 24 teeth...

I never saw a pic of the clutch arm arrangement, mystery!!!

Anyway, some more carbs having a cosy company tea ceremony in a garage somewhere in SoCal...
