Very cool. IIRC, the most rare Mikuni/Solex carb to have are the taper bore 50mm carbs.ni believe the jet cover is in the shape of an H on these ones.

But just the same that is a very cool vintage set up.

You're having good luck finding parts. FIA head, Solex 50s and that header.
What's the plans for the other car? Robbing it for bits or is it going to be another project?
