I put a Stebel Nautilus (air horn) on my BMW and that SOB is loud and proud. Was a PITA to install, and worth it.

The clamps are a great addition, as is the choke relocation.

My clutch seems to be slipping a bit, so I changed the order of the friction plates in the stack. I’ve found clutch plates don’t release in an, absolutely, uniform manner. One side of the stack usually releases with more space between the plates. It’s worked a charm doing this in the past...fingers crossed.

Thanks for the kind words.
The engine plates are one-offs from a lad in Israel, the cooler mounts are modded originals. The cooler is a modded aftermarket item.
