The motor is equipped with an S&S Super E carburetor with chrome air cleaner removed for pics. Mallory ignition, High output 12-volt chrome generator, and dual plug heads. The motor runs very well and starts up easily, with a couple of kicks. The bike has a very early 4-speed transmission and a new BDL 1.5 belt drive."
