Does that date from the "You meet the nicest people on a Honda" era?

My personal choice would be either a 40 mm Dellorto pumper or a Mikuni HSR42 flat slide pumper.
Had NO issues with idle using the standard GP with my Thruxton when I had it. Proper cable routing. I would never fit an Italian or even worse a Japanese carb to this thoroughbred Brit steed under any circumstances. This mutilation is heinous sacrilege. The bird in the photo is quite nice though. Probably her who fitted the carb.

Correct, simply because some light fingered ***hole stole their stock of GPs, or so the story goes. Still a Brit carb though.

The internets, of course.

Some come in through Facebook pages I've friended, some to websites I've noticed has the kinds of pictures we like.

I look for vintage photos of motorcycles and women. I look for photos of vintage motorcycle gatherings or competition. I explore web pages dedicated to old brands or customization of old bikes.

There is so much out there!

Didn't even see the shoes until you mentioned them.
