Looks great.
I see no threaded holes to take a vacume balancing set.
Can you post a few more pics. I see there's a choke cable instead of a lever. Do the cables have an easy run as they go past the frame tube, and under the tank?
Plenty of space around the fuel tap on the L?H side, but is it Ok on the R/H ? Allens pics do not show it with the tank on.
At over £600 I waqnt to know that there are no snags.
And are you getting better fuel consumption ?

Hi Gfiver,

There aren't vacuum take off points on the manifolds so I balanced the carbs by checking that the slides lifted at the same time as I wound the throttle open.
 
As supplied, the carbs come with lever chokes but as I already had a handlebar mounted choke lever I converted them to cable operation, speaking of cables, it's a fairly easy run past the frame tubes then under the tank and the throttle is comfortably light. 

There's plenty of room around the fuel taps, unfortunately I don't have photos of the other side and I've stripped the bike down for winter projects...
 
As for fuel consumption, I didn't get as far as checking it before the winter stripdown.
