I measured from the face of the bolting surface to the outer bead using a straight edge, sorry should have said 5 inches of dish.   Might have to stretch, I dunno, have found four tires for $240  all 215/50r13's but I am gonna see if they will take $200 cash.  I think I will have to roll the fenders for sure or cut them and get flares, or make them

These are the carbs I have planned for the LZ24, they are MIKUNI VM's from mid 80's Yamaha YZ250's.  Choke is 38mm and venturi is 55mm.  I think these 2 will be more than enough.

Those carbs look just like the ones on a Honda 200x 3 wheeler.

It seems the Datsun God wants me to really really build this 1200 OLD skool.

 I had found these tires online in the city north of me 100 miles.  Well called the shop, they have 4 BF Goodrich 215/50R13's in stock that some one had ordered and decided not to buy.  They had all four advertised for $200 plus tax and environmental fees for a total price of $245...................well I managed to deal them down to $200 cash for all 4!!!  So I will go up friday and pick them up.  And hopefully I will have the 1200 home by sunday!

I know, its gonna be tearing me up especially  when I have the new rubber and rims all ready for it, guess I have to get lug nuts too.  Will have the 215/50r13's on the rear and 175/70/13's on the front
front tires will be 1 inch larger in diameter, so they will look ok IMO.  Or if I can find 165/7013's I will put those on the front.

The quest for the 1200 ends tomorrow, she will be at my buddies shop shortly after dinner!  And I will have my fatty tires too, just gotta track down some "mag lug nuts"  when I am in the city so I can throw the mags on right away! 

Now.....question........guy said he quit driving it because he got another car and it was rusting on the bottom side..............it was not twisting or anything so I don't think its too bad.........and he is not mechanically inclined........so it might not be too rusty at all.    Is this a common thing on the 1200?  I mean if I have to make subframe connectors, that wont be too hard.
