The Puchavus Lives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It took all of last night, but at about midnight Devin pushed me while I put my hand over the carb and she fired right up.

The tires came in yesterday. Not just 2.25" Savas, but very fat 2.50's that are very angry. I could never have imagined how awsome this thing looks and feels.

For some reason it has almost no first gear and yet great acceleration. Not much in the way of top end, but this is all without tuning, rejetting or the Simonini. I'd say she'd topping out at about 32 mph. I'm pretty sure it won't be that hard to get this thing going in the low to mid forties.

It feels like there is some piston chatter and somethings up with the transmission, but she runs!!!!

Pictures soon...
