I bet they were doing that with their multi cylinder GP bikes in the mid sixties and the practice carried over to the production multis.

Very possible...double orings assure no leak, reliable. In view of the fact that these oldies are tricky and time consuming to fully split and service....long service life was desired and considered in design, no doubt. My pic only shows a small percentage of the multitude of attaching rack parts and throttle linkage hardware....def an old school design carbset.
I'll follow up with an "overview" pic of removed parts on the overcrowded work in process storage tray. Lotta stuff.
