Yea, that's your hand in the photo!
Originally, we were unsure of the age of the carbs, but I think I've dated them back to around a late 70's early 80's Yamaha.
They and the motor are going to be fully rebuilt, but I'll be keeping the stock 1272cc displacement. I might up the compression slightly, but it will definitely be getting a cam and some head porting too. This may even involve sending the motor back to Germany to be built by Sorg Motorsport, one of the few companies that specializes in the smaller 8v's.
If I can pull it off, I'd like to swap on an 085 5-speed transmission from a G40 Polo (the only that fits this setup) as opposed to the 084 4-speed it has right now, and then everything else on the motor will be replaced or refurbed and I have a good number of other custom touches planned too.
