These MkII Amal carbs have threaded throats on them, so what ever you want to put on them needs to be threaded so as to screw onto the carbs.

Surely those are MKI's not MKII's ?

Mine landed here direct from Lowbrow for $370 for the pair in just 10 days.

I was more shocked by the price for the Chopper Dave's air cleaner $280AUD!! Direct from Dave they're $175US.
