It looks like that was off of a shovelhead, judging by a quick search. There's one on the bay for 185 right now.

I'm debating on whether I want to put the same type on or go different, maybe a CV or jump up to an S&S. I really dont know. I might make another post asking everyone their thoughts.

Butterfly properly dialed in works fine, s&s is simple and easy to work on, though it seems a bit much for smaller engines, and the cv seems to be very well liked by just about everyone who has run one. The s&s or the cv will be easier to get parts for while the older butterfly carbs are easy enough to find jets for, but nobody seems to carry them so you'll be ordering online.
