Skinner Union

Well here's the problem.
First I had a crooked SU manifold. With the help from friends that problem was solved in just a few days. When I had te right manifold that fits well, I couldn't be happier! (for a moment...)
It looked like shit. This bike is going to be really narrow.
With the original SU manifold the carburator is sticking way too much out of the engine.
But... I had a original Mikuni manifold for the standard carburator...

See the difference in length.
Now I had to find out if I can make this fit.

Making a stencil..

And combine the two..

Grinding and drilling..
