Motobecane test ride and tune

Yesterday I had some time so I took the Motobecane out to test the new carb. Initially I didnt think there was much of an improvement over the old carb and was still quite boggy at low end. Anyway I fiddled about with it and after finding that it was running too rich I removed multiple screens from the airfilter which improved the airflow and reduced the low end bog. It also upped the top speed up to 32mph.
Next id just like to got through the clutch and make sure its working correctly but im waiting on a clutch/flywheel puller.
Its coming on! 
 
 
 
Here is a quick video of it idling with the new carb.
