About a year ago, there was an article in Airmail about a turnkey Mikuni carburetor conversion kit (throttle cables, adapters and carbs), and iirc, project by fellow member. 

Unfortunately I do not save my back issues.

Can anyone tell me the name of the supplier of that kit?

Thanks!

Sudco is the only one I know of. They are fairly big and definitely the oldest firm supplying parts for carb swaps.

Owning an old Airhead is easy.
Keeping an old Airhead running great is the true test.

Yes, they supply the carbs, but the vendor I am looking for provides a complete kit, with cables and adaptors... iow, all the details sorted out. The person who wrote the article was really happy with the results.

Ian, the supplier you are looking for is Rocky Point cycles. I think the owner has passed away.

I know a guy who has a donor bike R90/6 with Mikunis on it. I can check on it if you like.

Remarkably. Rocky Point was the advertiser at the top of the last page I opened here on the ABC website. . It appears that the Rocky Point web site has been hi-jacked.

Thanks, but the only way I'd do this is with a complete kit... I am not that gited mechanically.

Hey James - long time!

 

What a bummer about this, it sounded like a really good solution.
