    Tires:
    So to keep the bike on the road I've gone with Avon AM26 Roadrider tires. From the few test laps I've had the chance to do, I'm very happy.

    Fixed the Norton 750 Vibration Issue:
    I was also able to see how the vibration issue had been resolved by balancing the Crank to 78 degrees. I could not believe how smooth the motor runs, why Norton had never thought of doing it them selves is a mystery. I can't wait until I've broken the motor in and I can start pushing her hard.

    Fear not, if o1marc shows up at one of the meets you attend you can be sure it will be on the back of a bike.

    This is what I replaced the old twin carb set-up with:
    A Norton Atlas Single Mikuni manifold VM34 Carb Conversion Kit and manifold.
    I replaced the filter for a Carb Velocity Stack
    I also converted the chock lever that was mounted on the side of the carb to except a cable connection, so I can open and close from the handle bar lever.

    Well the sun is out and I thought it would be a great time to role the old girl out into the sun and take some pics.
    I did a walk around for a good look, I hope you all enjoy.

    A day ago the weather got worm enough for me to ride around the streets a little. After getting home the wife came to me and said, she could hear me from several blocks away. So yesterday I installed the baffle back into my mufflers, that should help to drop it down a few disables.
    Will give it a run as soon as it worms up again.

    Don't hurt the handicapped. Lower the decibels and everyone is happy.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    Warmed up nicely on Sunday so I was able to see how the bike sounded and ran with the baffles installed. The sound is a little tamer, but had to make a few adjustments on the carb.
    I need to record myself next time out, so I can hear how the bike sounds driving by.
