tony .when i was building there was an issue with ground clearance
as i dont have deep pockets i devised that system to run alongside the frame.
obviously taste is a personal thing and i dont have a problem with it
.but how many chops will you see next year with a similar or same exaust system .hopefully not manycoz being a chopper rider and builder its all about being different innit.seriously mate thanks anyway
mebbe ill see you around next year eh .the first run for it should be into the valley so keep an eye out as they say and ill buy ya a beer

I'd make an alli tool box the same shape as the silencer for the other side and match it up. Make it a feature.

yeah no offence was meant, dont think you took any either

I like the endcan, to me its just the front pipes, they take up such a large % of the side on view and draw your eye to them, but as you say its about doing your thing and being different, my last ride, at least 70% of the poeple that saw it didnt like it, hey thats cool, as I loved it, so who cares LOL

it was in a show in wales and won a good few prizes, so sometimes being a marmite bike pays off

look forward to seeing what you do next
