Yes Steve pretty much why i bought it , such a great piece of history, as i said blower and manifolds were sold separately , they cant remember who, other than he was a hillclimb guy , i presume vw , i was lucky enough to purchase a marshall blower(identical ) an S.U's off good freind Jeff Unwin, its a long shot but , but if any body knows the where abouts or who purchased blower an manifolds yr's ago , it 'd be a lot easier than remaking it all....... just manifolds , never know whats lying around still , as this bike was........ photo credits to Jim Thornley
