    Or search on YouTube for “Pimp My Ride”.

    Make it Flashy, Basically making it fancy like the Caddies, and Deuce and a Quarters, the pimps customized in the sixties and seventies.

    The fuel pump has been in a box of zx-7 parts since....1996....when I combined a 1995 roller/theft recovery. With a destroyed 1991 zx-7.... but it had a good engine. I saved the pump... nothing else

    today..... modded the cushman choke lever to match up to the motorcycle choke cable in the engine compartment. bent up a SS bracket. drilled a hole thru a 5mm allen head bolt. found a brass 5mm bolt and drilled a 1/16th hole thru the thread . found a pair of ?pesos and drilled a couple holes in them. i now have dash mounted Manuel Choke to the HD carb.
