Triumph pre unit chopper

Today I mounted the exhaust and fired her up. She started immediately but I need to change the spark plug caps (these are not the right ones for magneto ignition) and tune the carb.

 I also fired up the 650 with a new smaller main jet but it is still to big (to much gas). Updates over a week. I'm off snowboarding in Austria for a week.
