Hi,

have been tired of Sikaflex repair jobs on my old intake Boots.

Hi Mark,
indeed they are also nice to look at :D
The base body from aluminum has been made on a five axis milling machine to allow design of the model.
Intake itself is simply a universal boot from another carb brand :wink: which fits perfectly.

I have set up a small series in order to keep the costs for the master pieces down. If someone is interested just send me a PM.

Basically it is not important for me to suit overpriced NOS parts as they are already thirty years old. And to be honest - rubber does not behave like a good wine.

Regards

Alastair

They do look good. There doesn't appear to be an oil feed, so I guess these are premix only?

Very impressive. How long did it take you to put those together? You must have access to some serious kit

Yes, I am running pre-mix with my bike but you can choose either you want to have the oil feed for the pump or without.
