The air filter, special version for the FHC, was available in the pile of parts belonging to the car. The brackets needed to mount it to the water outlet and to the air inlet where not available and made by myself. I also reshaped the right part of the air filter by removing the lid because it was badly damaged in the past. By removing the lid it could be straighten from the inside which was much easier.

All parts needed for mounting the air filter
The air filter mounted on the carburetors

The air filter will be protected from water and dirt by splash screen.
This splash screen consist of two parts :
– one before the front wheel (protecting the ignition)
– one after the front wheel (protecting the air filter)
