More success! It's gotta end soon.

So I rode the Pinto a bit today... I'm getting used to how the carb wants to be treated. It has some interesting quirks, I feel like once the bike is warmed up it pretty much smoothes out but when I first get it started it doesn't want me to dump full throttle on it all at once.

Michael Mike helped me out with a better intake solution and now it should be pretty solid.
It looks a bit frankenstein but I think it's appropriate for the bike.

The one thing I need to look into further is the nipple on the intake. It is a little bit janky because I drilled and tapped it in a less than precise environment. I'll put a little JB weld on it and it should be fine.
