Hard to believe that I brought her home 22 years ago this month!
Some of her history can be found here:
I wanted to start this thread because I recently had her original carbs professionally rebuilt by Tim at VolkzBitz.com. He did a great job. Micro-mediablasting the carb bodies, replating all of the linkage bits, installing thread-in barbed fuel inlets, rebushing all of the shafts, complete rebuild kit, the works...
This is what I sent Tim…
This is what I got back about 6 weeks later…
I got them installed last weekend. Dial-in was really easy with all of the slop gone. Sophy is running better than ever and ready for the next 150k miles.
I even restored her year of manufacture license plate as a treat…
Took her out for a Sunday cruise for ice cream. Felt great to be back driving her after the long winter. I think she is ready for the drive out to the All Air-Cooled Gathering in mid-June.
