Aftermarket air filters new

In case anyone is looking for a really nice air filter with a 2 1/4" Inlet for your Rochester carbs, I found this locally from a buddy up in St Petersburg Florida. The company is map Cycles. these are$21 each and with the 2 1/4 Inlet they fit nice and snug on the carbs and I are a great look and excellent quality. They are racing filters originally made for Norton motorcycles. A set of four shipped was $91.

That's what you meant by "Soup Cans" ?
VW shops have similar ones for the old Bugs too.

If I can possibly avoid catering to a foreign business, I do so (OK, I'm anti China, and then I find all of my "high end" tools were forged in . . .Taiwan, they were machined/finished here. eye rolling smiley Go figure). I'd prefer to pay a tad more to support a local business. "Cheap" is easy to find, but not necessarily the best value, yada, yada. That being said, there are some very good things/items that come from foreign countries (my vitamin/mineral supplement, "rated highest in purity & quality," whatever that means today?!) Its difficult being an informed consumer with all of the misinformation and false advertising. I have a locally owned auto parts store I go to when I need parts, even if that means waiting a day or two for shipment. I frequent the local Farmer's markets that abound here in the Salad Bowl of the US (Salinas Valley). Just my take on micro economics - think globally, shop locally. ggg
