I have a rajay turbo from a "turbo city" kit, from 1980 or so, and it's the
same design, though I don't care much for the intake and exaust headers, it
seems to work pretty well.  The plugs don't stay all that clean however.  Do
you know the model number of the carb they used?  Where did you get your
pistons?  I seem to have lots of problems finding pistons for the bike, that
don't require either the stock bore, or resleeving, as far as low
compression forged parts go.
