Expensive Carburetor Rebuild

Finally got around to pulling the carbs completely apart and found out just how many new parts I needed to buy. Yes, a couple of hundred dollars later in completely new carb parts I am still shitting my pants. Everything was shot due to the bike sitting for such a long time. All the needles, bushings, seals, springs and fittings were shot. At least I won't have too much trouble shooting to do when it comes to fire it up, well besides tuning 4 carbs in unison. Going to clean all the parts I can and paint them up black to match the heads. The rest of the engine will be polished out aluminum and should create a sweet color scheme matching the other tins.
