Bob Scogins: "The Junkyard Dawg"

Bob handmade this vintage styled single carb (32mm) and 2 into 1 intake manifold system especially for his vintage replica: "The Bobber"!

Bob designed and built this single point set, dual cam lobe ignition system that fires both cylinders together. Timing remains the exact same for both pairs of cylinders, and will never vary as dual contact systems do.

A single dual tower Accel super coil lurks beneath the tank and fires both cylinders spark plugs at exactly the same time through high tech silicone/graphite Accel 8.8mm plug wires.
