Guy who originally sold it to me thought it was a 78 but after I ran the vin I know it is a 79. Had a 6/78 build date vin decal.

BTW I lived in Indy when I was in college, used to be able to hear the MOTO GP from my apartment

hope you're using someone with experience of working on those carbs, many shops don't have a clue, and just swap parts from rebuild kits

Carbs are easy enough to work on your own, especially with many well written guides on this and other sites...so, I suggest next time you pull them off try it yourself

carbs

Welcome !

Great find, you are on your way to some awesome fun but please take care.
These things can turn into monsters with a twist of the throttle.

I'll explain in another post, I thought I'd lost power with the K&N filter and stock head pipes, WOW was I wrong. They go better than they stop !!!!!

Done };~)
