How do those 350s run with your 1.5" exhaust? The stock pipes vary from 1 to 1.125" ID, depending where you measure, so you've increased the exhaust size by almost 50%. Obviously they have to be jetted way up, but I would think that the bottom end torque would take a big hit. I know these two aren't running yet, but I've seen your other 350 build, and assume you're going to use the same pipes.

The bike ran great, but took some time to get dialed in. These, and the kits I plan on selling are going to get 1.25" tubing.

Two fenders and the tools used to make them. Only tool not pictured is the e-wheel.

Always enjoy watching your metal work. Great job so far on these.

I need to make a couple fenders for a project I got going on, I was going to attempt roughly hammering them out with just the nylon mallet, sure I'll need to do a lot of filling. This might be the motivation I need.

That's awesome! I have that same Mossy Oak mug, love it. I TIG welded a handle onto it.

Did you make that spoon out of a lawnmower blade?

Get at it! I can get this same result without the e-wheel by planishing with the slapper and dolly. Just takes a little longer. I make my slapper's the old fashion way from a leaf spring. $30 at tractor supply gets you a trailer spring with enough leaves for several slappers. A nice egg dolly is about $45. For $75 you can make a lot of parts.
