Chopped Monobloc

I've seen twin Amal TT's, Amal GP's and even the 276's but English Stephen schooled me on something I'd never seen before, the chopped Monobloc.

Used briefly on mid 60's Norton Atlas, 650SS and perhaps a BSA model or two. The right side carb of the pair has a "chopped off" float chamber. The two carbs then "share" the single float bowel via banjo bolts a fuel-line. The normal 389 model designation becomes a "689" for the chopped carb. Pretty wild stuff.
