I just picked up this bobber from a neighbor of mine. It needs a front brake and getting the frame all cleaned up. It's It's a good bike with Mikuni carbs and a great throttle response.

Finally home. Needed a new brake switch, new fuel lines, and still needs a good carb sync.

I did just pick up a UNI-SYN today but I think the problem lies deeper than that. Zero throttle and half throttle work fine. It's 1/4 and full throttle that it bogs out / cuts out. Other than that, I just have to install the front brake and I'll be all set. Oh, and bar end mirrors.

On the road! Brake switch done. Carbs rebuilt. Twice. (Sticky float) bar end mirrors on. Headlight wiring is next. And a seat.
