Rattling noise... Bearings? Piston

Is this normal? Or is it something I should try to address?

Sounds typical

Bike run good ? Sounds good at speed ?

It’s only 40 some years old so if it runs good don’t worry about it

Ive had some issues with idle and power, it has a high flow air filter on it, but the stock pipe. Ive removed the baffle and it has holes drilled in the first chamber, so I'm working through that. Otherwise it seems to be alright

That’s a normal noise most I’ve built do that, I thought it was probably the gears meshing in the bottom end. Just rocking it slightly.
