Kinda late but I thought I would post the fix for my old SOB that had the same starvation issues. The givaway was about 5 minutes after parking, I would hear a loud "BOING". It was the fuel tank expanding back into shape . It turns out the carbon canister vent was plugged and the fuel pump was sucking the tank inward. I made it home with no issues by loosening the fuel cap .

But them pix look GREAT! Sweet MoHo... too bad the mechanical problems. You've got an engine overhaul thing to look at. Not just to get you to point "B", but to get you anywhere. Apparently, the "appearance group" was upgraded before the "performance group"... what you see isn't necessarily what you got.

But not to worry. A little $$/pain and you have an absolutely BEAUTIFUL classic!

Welcome and congrats!
