    I sent them to a canvas shop for sewing. He used 3 rows of polyester thread.

    Ryan,
    As best i can tell the original straps were 1 1/2" wide and 1/4" thick cotton, same as mine. I haven't been able to find out what the original color was, so mine are olive drab.

    The bombsight venturi has been used for many years on cars. I have only seen them on carbs with horizontal carbs, not the vertical shafts on the older bike carbs.
    Is that some sort of clue?

    I don't think it would pull much air at low speeds through such a small hole. There would be very little negative pressure there until the air flow through the venturi started to generate some...

    The hole in the end looks too small to be used very well to adjust the air flow. It is such a small percentage of the open venturi area.
    Would it be a fuel drain for when you stop the motor?

    I have looked at a pair of M53's as an option.
    Are these a 1" carb.
    The cylinders have 1 1/4" flanges on them, so i may need something like the M35, with a modern bombsite venturi.

    When I am doing wheels, I always study the hub. They often have wear marks where the spokes sit on the hub which can tell you the original spoke pattern.
