You should feel justifiably proud of the job you have done. That looks amazing.

Wow…awesome looking bike! That puppy must fly (relatively speaking).

How do you like that engine-mounted decompression lever? Do you usually want gloves to work it after it heats up?

The engine mounted decomp lever works fine and eliminated one cable, but it does get hot, however since I always wear gloves when riding it's not a problem.

When engaged it stays open, doesnt it, until you flip it off?

No, hold it open, kick it over to TDC, release it and it closes.

Bummer, that is fine for an initial start but dang awkward when it needs to be held to do, say, 4 or 5 brisk kicks to clear a flooded condition.
Of course, if ya never flood it........
