Blown Sporty

This is decent picture of the Magnuson blower on our Sportster kit bike (though in black and white you can tell it has the shitty ass brown seats on it. AEE sold those and then even some in denim, poor kit bike ended up with both on it at various times). It also has one of the first 2 in to 1 exhausts on it. Actually a muffler adapted to fit our exhaust system. Again this bike was a mule for a tremendous amount of parts. When this bike was built it was normally aspirated then quickly morphed in to having a Weber carb and Joe Hunt magneto on it, then the blower.
The manifold for the Weber and the blower were the work of Jerry Magnuson and I believe this was the very first commercial application of his design. It worked well and was reliable. If any one out there has one of the AEE/MPD Weber manifolds I'd love to have it!
